It all started over the weekend when I ran into a friend at the Home School Conference. She’s one of the moms of some boys on Asa’s basketball team. We were talking about how the boys missed each other since basketball season had ended in early March. One thing led to another, and we figured out a time to get her boys over to hang out with Asa.
And then that one thing led to another, and we decided to call more boys on the basketball team.
And to make a long story short…there are seven teenage boys in my house right now.
Since Monday night and Tuesday were the days that worked best for everyone, we all just decided to cram Tuesday’s school work into Monday and Wednesday (ah, the beauty of home schooling!) so that Tuesday can be a big day for hanging out and shooting hoops.
Three lasagnas and four loaves of bread later, I’d say these boys are having a pretty good time…
Seven teenage boys might seem a little intimidating…but I promise you that even I am having a wonderful time. These have GOT to be the most polite boys on the earth. I love them. Our younger boys love them. Their mothers should be proud.
We’ll be having pancakes in the morning. I’m trying to decide how many times I should quadruple this recipe to fill them all. (How’s that for a gluten-filled sentence in the middle of our Gluten Free Recipe Parade week!?) :)
What a blessing for my son to have friends like this in his life. Bring on the hollow legs!
