Boy Week: Day One
Shari's out of town this week - meaning it's time for "Boy Week"... during which the Jackson men attempt to take care of themselves while ingesting massive amounts of sugar & other less-than-healthy foods. The first event of Boy Week was watching Wipeout on the VCR. (Wipeout, btw, is a spectacularly odd piece of summer TV programming - it's like someone crossed the greatest youth retreat game ever with an episode of Talk Soup.) Event #2 was Dad having to go to prayer gathering & a church council meeting while the boys played in the back room at the office - and used markers. Note that you need two pictures to find all of the purple marks on Collin. When we got back home, we printed out a copy of the Jelly Belly flavor chart & took turns sampling Belly Flops (irregular Jelly Belly jelly beans you can buy by the metric ton at their outlet store in Gilroy.) Here's Braeden consulting the chart.
