Kindness

I just wanted to say that I feel much better about people right now. First, there was the comment from Jacquie on my previous post (sorry I'm just replying now!). That was just so dang sweet of you to offer to send the boys something - it doesn't matter where the package comes from, it's just fun to receive something of your very own when you're a kid (maybe I should arrange my own swap - with just two partners, ha! I couldn't have you send anything without sending something in return).
And then today, the boys got a package from my sister, which was totally unexpected but hey, sometimes she's like that. They were so excited. When I told Benson it was for him and Jack, he said, "Really? We never get mail!" Aw.
My sister also sent this to me.

(Late night + Pathetic photographer = Blurry picture)
That's right, I'm 30 (although I don't look a day over 35). My birthday was Saturday and she sent me an eCard then, but a birthday isn't a birthday without one of her handmade cards.
Moving on.
The boys' package had bouncy balls and sidewalk chalk, which they put to immediate use.
Jack is just fine, he's just demonstrating the proper use of a chalk drawing light saber.
Benson drew a Yoda head and a lovely, um, bug.
A new superhero perhaps?He was obviously inspired by these.(those black specks are a swarm of ants)
Apparently it's time to get out the ant traps. How fun.

Mail is fun at any age! I'm so glad you're feeling a bit better about the bloggy world. Love to see the boys enjoying their goodies. Ants...reminds me of my boys when they were young. All sorts of icky things.
