Special Night



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.

This photo makes me really happy, too! The game went into extra innings, eleven of them. I'm not a big baseball fan but it was truly a exciting game.
