spider boy

So those pesky defective nitrogen pellets had no intentions of dissolving on their own. So we played outside anyway. My knees felt stingy afterwards, so I guess there is a reason you are not supposed to play in that stuff. John mowed them tonight so hopefully that will do the trick.

I was reminiscing our former backyard days, and I came across some photos from labor day. I remember nagging Finn not to use so much string. But honestly, I don't even know where the string came from. This little project kept Finn occupied for over an hour, so I just let him be.

So here is my little spider, laboriously spinning his web over labor day weekend.











I'm starting to think Finn's soccer uniform is his BFF.

Sigh. Why did I even bother buying him fall clothes??

  9. you could also ask why we bother to buy our children toys?? Who needs toys when something like string will keep them occupied for hours?? :)
    Of course, one must have a healthy and hard-working imagination to be so amused, and your boys are NEVER short on that!!
    He looks so cute in his soccer uniform, no wonder you let him wear it all the time. :)
