Realizing our boys were desperately needing time away from each other as well as time WITH us, the parents, we have started giving each of them a special night almost once a week. A night when one boy gets to stay up later than the other to play games or trains or whatever. The first week Art, Ben and I played Parcheezi. It took us three Special Nights to finish the game. (I won!) Lewis usually wants to make a train track with us and the night he first gave up his gackoo he had a special night with me. We played crazy eights and he clobbered me. Three in a row!
Last night Art had his special night and went to The Saints game with Ben. Minor league baseball - eleven innings! He didn't get home until 11pm! I just LOVE this picture of them together that Ben sent from his phone. That is love and mutual enthusiasm right there in a picture. I love it.
