|Ever shooting a BB gun . . . pantless|
|Baby in a box. And notice that blur behind him, a cage of chickens . . . yes, on the front porch!!|
This was just the scene from our house this evening. The kids were wanting to shoot the BB gun so I set up a box as a target for them. They were shooting when a car drove by (we are in a fairly secluded area so cars don't drive by too often). That is when I noticed the scene in front of me and what I can only imagine those people (who were obviously sight seeing on the mountain) must have thought. For me, parenting by instincts often means I usually just go with the flow, which I am sure may look a bit odd to some.
I had 2 long haired boys shooting a bb gun . . . and I had to tell them to stop so they wouldn't hit the car driving by. One of them had no pants on (they had gotten wet, and he can't stand wet clothes). Another long haired boy with the water hose spraying it towards the road. I had to holler for him to stop too as he totally would have soaked them inside their car . . . as their windows were down (hey, just noticed I used the word "holler" . . . very redneck of me). I also had a toddler running around the yard butt naked. His clothing of choice is no clothing at all. He is ALWAYS naked, and he likes to run down the yard when cars drive by yelling "car, car, car, car, car", oh and of course there was a baby sitting on the porch in a box.

It was quite the humorous scene. I felt better though when I recalled events from earlier in the day. It was calm and peaceful. All the kids sitting on the screen porch eating 'dang quesadillas', chips and salsa. That isn't quite as 'redneck' is it? (though I still had 1 naked and 1 without pants ;0)
