the virtue of boys…

My Boys-photo by jen lemen and posted at shuttersisters

Charlie and Sam came over yesterday, they are the same ages of my boys. It’s good when things are in pairs, everybody needs a partner. I casually looked out the window and saw a child literally flying through the air.

The foursome were on our water slide (and thank god i didn’t pay that much for it)…the collective testosterone had multiplied the dare devil attempts. I think, although I’m not sure, they were trying to jump OVER the second hump. This makes the mother in me a little nervous but it makes the kid in me completely impressed.

I love the energy “more” brings….more boys, more running, more jumping, more pizza please, more pushing the limits of life- the body, the joy, a mother’s sanity. These are the virtues of little boys on a hot summer day.
