Sleep tight

The boys and I spent some time outside on this beautiful March afternoon. Andrew insisted on playing in the front yard because he wanted to climb the trees. They can't play in the front yard without my being outside with them and I hedged at first; I have lots of laundry to do. Thank goodness I relented. I would have missed this if they had been in the backyard. 

The video quality is poor and unedited, but it's such a great glimpse into how they roll that I'm posting it anyway. Andrew swung himself up into that tree dozens of times, kind of like a leaping monkey, and Thomas?  Thomas was practicing his football footwork.  He's watched too much of the recent NFL combine agility testing with Dad on television.

You would think they would be tired at bedtime, no?

It's so neat to see each of them doing his own thing. Love Andrew's running around in and out of the picture and Thomas's twirling and the big finale kick. So cute! Can't wait to see them in person.

Tired? Yes, you would think so. Except they're boys and are powered by things I cannot understand. Hope maybe this means they'll be chill little travelers for you!

You know, I can honestly believe that they were probably not tired when bedtime rolled around. I cannot tell you how many times a week I hear, "but I'm just not tired" and all I can think of is, "I DON'T CARE" (in my head of course;-))!!
