What? Boys, yeah.


I just looked outside to see Eli contemplating a skateboard, a bunch of mardi gras parade tokens, and a bottle of gorilla glue with a delighted, enthusiastic smile on his face.

I would have snapped a photo, but some immediate intervening had to be done.

This boy snaps into action. Sometimes the thinking comes later.


Actually, the thinking follows the doing almost without fail.

He just asked me if I’d hold the nail while he hammered.


What an optimistic boy.

I declined.

One more thing about Eli. He does this every day on the way home from school. Sometimes he yells, “This the best day of my life!” Today he decided to spit.


Yep. All boy.
