I’m going to try to ease myself back into writing here, hopefully regularly after the boys are back in school (which is in 9 days. I can’t even believe it.). I have two trips to recap, but here’s a little story from our last weekend trip that illustrates the boys’ different personalities.
We spent the weekend at Lake Delavan in Wisconsin with Matt’s entire family. The old lake cottage was lifted off its foundation last fall, a basement poured, and the house put back. It’s still under construction, but all 16 of us were able to stay there! The boys stayed in the basement in a bunk room, and there’s a bathroom down there now, too.
And since they’re old enough to just take care of themselves, I didn’t interfere with the showering process at all.
We all bring our own towels when we stay at the cottage, and it occurred to me on the drive back to STL yesterday that I had never given the boys their bath towels after we got there. (Of course, no one asked if there were any. Typical.)
I knew that they had all showered at least once, so I asked, “Uh, what did you do to dry off?”
Luke: “I just dripped dry.”
Bennett: “I used my beach towel. There was some sand, but I didn’t care.”
Jack Henry: “I just used the towel hanging closest to the shower.” (My apologies to whomever else was drying off with that towel.)
I won’t over-analyze this, but honestly, their solutions fit their personalities so perfectly it’s hilarious.
