My Boys Keep Me Busy

Last night, ds21 was headed back to college from a weekend out-of-state visit to his fiancee when he lost control of the car he was driving (icy roads), did a 720 (two 360's) and landed in a ditch. The police officer who found him and the four other college students he was traveling with told them that God must have been looking out for them, because if they hadn't gone off the road where they did, they would surely have been involved in the big crash that took place just a little farther down the highway soon afterward. It's a good thing I pray for my kids! Anyway, since this happened only about an hour from our home, and the kids were pretty shaken up, they came here last night and slept over, then headed back the rest of the way to the college early this morning. Dd15 suggested that maybe our house hasn't sold yet because God knew we'd need it last night to put up five people at the last minute....with five bedrooms and an office, we had plenty of room for everyone.

Meanwhile, dsds13* decided this morning that he was Fred, the blond guy from the Scooby-Doo series. (On any given day, ds could be Spider-man, Superman, Batman, Santa Claus.....today he was Fred.) Feeling the need for a Fred costume, he took his white dress shirt and colored the collar with a blue crayon. Then he drew an orange ascot on the front of the shirt and colored it completely orange. He did not get the reaction he hoped from his dad, who found him busily working on this project. The shirt is now steeped in Shout gel and soaking in the washer. I needed something else to do...sigh.

You mean to tell me that you did NOT take a picture of the Scooby Doo Dude? Of course, when our daughter decided to cut up a perfectly good bathrobe in order to make a proper princess costume...Reaching for the camera was not the first thing I thought of reaching for!
