The neighborhood is undergoing some changes. The boys are getting bigger, and turning older, three of them will go to school this fall. Recently the twins were given guns for their sixth birthday. They loaded them up and began to shoot almost everything in sight. I cannot believe that they are six already, it seems only yesterday that they were born and so very tiny.
The re-loader kept hollering "No fair shooting anyone over six."
No one was safe..I survived, they were pretty poor shots, it was almost impossible for them to aim while running and giggling.
Aubrey was armed with a bucket, I was rewarded with a huge smile when I turned on the hydrant to give her some ammo..which she promptly dumped on my foot.
They also beheaded a cow, they whopped her with a stick until she lost her head and spilled out candy into the yard.
Yup it is a pretty exciting neighborhood, I am thankful to just be the old Great Aunt watching from afar:)
