….on a Fall afternoon….a week before Halloween….when school is done and Mom announces that THIS came in the mail today:
The shopping list for the weekend now includes PVC pipe, some kind of foam, cardstock paper, metallic spray paint, oh, and duct tape. A lot of duct tape. 🙂
There’s already a request for the follow-up book: The Knight Book: Warfare by Duct Tape that they hope they’ll find under the Christmas tree.
Unlike most requests, I’m sure that can be arranged. They’ve inured me to enough of their quips and games and I’d much rather them keep busy creating their own costumes and accoutrements. 🙂 Besides, these boys have five princesses to protect and defend (not that said princesses won’t lend a hand in the battle, mind). They can’t start too soon. 🙂
