Lord Of The Flies
We had one of those amazing summer thunderstorms the other night. You know the kind where you hear the thunder rumbling off in the distance but yet it seems like the storm is never going to come.
Well this one came with a vengence - chasing us inside from our vantage point of the roofed-side of the deck - after dime-sized hail started pelting the house.
Before you knew it, the storm was gone, the sun was up and the boys ran around barefoot in the backyard and rubbed mud all over their bodies Lord Of The Flies style.
I used to be incredibly anal when it came to things like this and my wife was quite shocked that I gave them the thumbs up.
Sometimes you just have to allow kids to be kids and sometimes I forget that as a parent.
