Boys have their own language. This was fun to watch while the other day while my son spent some time with his buddies in Redding via iChat. This screen shot above shows Ethan using a Nerf gun to shoot Calvin (or Christian? they are twins and I can’t always tell them apart!). The dialog was hilarious which included the latest level reached on the current video game, karate, football practice, dogs and of course guns, swords and boxing gloves. The next picture is where Ethan is showing off the boxing gloves he and the Kerr boys used for play when we lived in Redding. Ethan misses his buddies and they miss him, too. It is amazing how technology can extend our established relationship–even for a nine-year-old boy.
I wished my mom and in-laws got into this! They could "see" their grandchildren a lot more. (hint hint).
