I woke up this morning feeling quite refreshed. Russell and Donovan are gone camping with the boy scouts. The house is fairly quiet. I have noticed that any three of the boys can get along splendidly. You add in the fourth and no matter who the fourth is....he has to tease/aggravate his brothers in some way. So today has been just splendid so far. Michael got his wood chore done. Christopher is on vacation from chores and Nephi did what he could to help as well. All three play very nicely together in whatever world happens to beckon to them. Without Donovan around - Christopher is actually very pleasant. He is a great peacemaker if there is a little squabble with the younger boys. Maybe he thinks he needs to compete with Donovan in some way whenever he and Donovan are near each other. Maybe Heavenly Father thinks this is humorous to watch. Me trying to figure out one teenage boy and one almost teenage boy interact with each other.
I hope your weekend is just splendid too!
