With dreams of backyard battles, my 11 and 13 year-olds bought air soft guns before Christmas. Although I have reservations about them shooting each other with those tiny plastic pellets, it’s all the rage around these parts. Their friends take turns hosting the wars.
So, being the safety-first-mama that I am, I got them both really cool (air soft) face masks for Christmas. And you know what? They’re coming in pretty darn handy even out side of the air soft wars.
And lest you think, “Awe, those poor cold boys out there shoveling that big long endless driveway…”
They have a little help…
Their dad’s big toy makes pretty quick work of most of it.
Which leaves me free to take the pictures. :)
And this is a look in the other direction. You can see more of the spruces we planted along the road and among our sycamores. We planted over 200 trees. Someday, we’re hoping they will provide a nice wind-block for us from the winter winds. They are well on their way!
