Last year they threw burning bits of paper out of his third-story bedroom window.

This year they took a swim in the glacial waters of our pool, gasping and laughing as they pranced and shook and wiggled their skinny man-bodies in defiance of winter.



Wouldn't any self-respecting mother have outlawed such a thing? :D

Oh goodness, that can't be very warm yet (is it?) What fun tho! :)

Any self respecting mother should stand at the window and take a picture to remember it by, put the memory in her pocket for another day, and soak up all the memories with her man-boy laughing and loving, with eyes dancing in the freezing water at the joy of adventure - because he is one in a million. Cheers Elias!

Oh, I think they learned their lesson after last year's punishment phase. Cold water is less painful. :) 13...

Augh! Why?? Crazy boys! Of course you outlawed that! I like how their sisters are wisely watching from *outside* the pool.

I've been known to let my girls take a dip in the pond as early as April before. They'll survive! Carla
