Testosterzone #18

I made the executive decision to cut short our history lesson (the Space Race, the Bay of Pigs, and the Cuban Missile Crisis) and have an Early Release Day today, what with the boys being all distracted by the appearance of a long-awaited yellow orb in the sky.  Since the other neighborhood kids are still imprisoned at school, they headed out to hold the bunnies and work in Dino-opolis.

Heard Tate rummaging in the toy bins, asking permission to take some old plastic rockets, missiles, and such outside.  (They have to ask because once toys go out, they stay out.)

Gunnar came in to report that Wyatt and Tate were building Nuclear Power Plants. 

You know, so they could have a Cold War.

Fun times.

I wonder who will be Kruschev and who will be Kennedy?

I love your boys, Julie! =)

The Cold War seems like a less attractive one for active boys!

Too right, Joey!

I'm sure it would heat up pretty fast ;D

What fantastic memories they will have of their childhood games - and you too!
Here on our side it's all Star Wars again... The older boys bought their little brother a lightsabre for his birthday and have been initiating him into the Jedi ways eversince...

Wait a minute, I thought you said you cut the history lesson short. Sounds like it kept on going to me! :-)

Lol! All I can say is at least you know they're learning their lessons well.
