The boys were encouraged to work hard during the week so that they could have extra free time on Friday. So, when their friends up the street knocked on our door at 11:30, they were ready to ride bikes around the neighborhood and go fishing. Except for a lunch break, they played outside with them for 5 hours.
Our neighborhood connects to Lake Accotink, which is, as Daniel says, “Deceivingly beautiful”. However, it has a 4 mile trail around it which I take advantage of just about everyday by either walking or running. Since the “Stay at Home” order, our boys have been riding their bikes to different spots to do tricks on their bikes, fish, throw rocks, etc… It’s been great.
Like I said, they went fishing with their buddies today. It’s great to let them have these times of independence. Today they cut up one of the fish that they caught with a pocket knife and used it to catch other fish. If lame old mom was there, I bet I would have put a damper their adventurous fish cutting spirit.
Since I wasn’t there, I don’t have any pictures to show you.
In the afternoon, I did something that I’ve never done before: Cut Daniel’s hair. I’ve cut the boys’ hair ever since their first haircut, so I wasn’t too nervous about it. He and Isaac have identical hair:
And since I was at it, I cut Isaac’s hair too:
And to end the night, we played “Take 2”. If you’ve never played it before, it’s way more fun than Scrabble. Can you guess which one is mine and which one is Daniel’s?
