Our neighbors have two teen-aged kids who attend a private school and don't have any friends in the neighborhood besides ours. So Brooks, pictured here on the right of Christopher, who is four years older than my son, hangs out here at our house all the time. Christopher and Brooks often play World of Warcrafts on the computer, jump on the trampoline, and here, they're having fun spinning and twirling around these broom handles. They think there's a lot more to do here, so they are always over here rather than next door. (Fine with me!) Brooks is a really good kid and as polite is as can be. His mom, Stacy, comes to card camp with us sometimes. Christopher is concentrating on his sweet skills with the broom handle.
He has kept busy the last three weeks. This week, he's been at basketball camp. Last week, it was scout camp. The week before, it was football camp. He'll have a break for a couple of weeks, then have soccer camp for one week. I'm trying to keep him moving this summer and avoiding hearing the phrase, "I'm bored." So far, so good.
