Last night I received such a request. Since they were not doing anything in school, they humbly asked to be checked-out from school today. I promise Harry needs to be an attorney. I start thinking about if it's a good idea to check them out & he has 5000 reasons why I should. 8 times out of 10 I will initially refuse their request, but I hesitate millisecond & you can see the hopefulness on their faces.
Yes, I said I like it when my boys rough-house. I let them throw balls in the house (but please be careful of my lamps), run, wrestle, and whatever else boys like to do. (bodily functions are not excluded, but time and place please) When they're out in public or at a friend's house I expect gentlemanly behavior, but a man's home is his castle, so I have 1 king & 3 princes who have marked ever inch of this house. Elizabeth & I just shake our heads; laugh at their antics; and remember to check the toilet seat before we go to the bathroom.
I hope you all have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving! We're going to Tupelo to have dinner with Hopson's oldest brother, his family, and my in-laws. I know I will have TONS of stories. When we all get together, craziness ensues, but there's lots of laughter.
Y'all be blessed beyond measure,
