Stop and Go

My boys...
Sunday, Gabe and Emerson came down to see their new little nephew/cousin, William.  We went to church, but seeing as these little men were so excited to see each other and play, I KNEW there was NO WAY they would be quiet in church.  So, I stayed outside the church with them while they played.  The game?  Stop and Go!

A few weeks ago when I was at Lindsey's, Benjamin started telling me to 'STOP' when I was walking...or when I was singing....or when I was talking.  I'd stop, and then he'd wait a bit and say, "GO!" and I'd start walking again, or singing, or talking.  He has continued this game ever since...and I'm assuming he taught it to Emerson...

I think it's a variation of "Are you ready?"  "Ready!"
They ran...and they ran...and they ran... and they screamed...and they screamed...and they screamed.  I thought I overheard some people saying something about the 'screaming kids', so I told them they should stop screaming.  Well, a few minutes later, Benjamin started screaming again...I reminded them to stop screaming, and Emerson quickly said, "I wasn't screaming, Mimi,"  I told him I knew he wasn't and I thanked him.

"Whew,"  these little guys were T-I-R-E-D...
They hung their bodies over the bench for a few minutes, got a drink of water, and off they went again!
