The boys recently purchased some more pvc pipe and pool noodles to make boffers. They covered the boffers with duct tape to make them stronger. It reminds me of when they were little boys playing with their light sabers. After that they were in their fencing period. They alarmed many moms in the neighborhood when they had fencing matches with their foils in the yard. Now they are back to a goofy combat period again.
The boys took Buster outside with them while they were jousting. Buster was very upset that they were hitting each other. The poor dog didn't know which boy to defend. He solved the situation by barking and jumping on whoever was hitting the hardest.
I really enjoyed watching the boys horse around in the backyard together. I know that those days are numbered. Right now they should be savored.
