Who needs clothes?

One of my children's little quirks is that neither of them like to wear pants (trousers) or shoes and socks. While I do make them wear clothes in public it is impossible to make them keep them on at home. They seem to be completely unaware of the role that clothing has in keeping them warm. Peter refuses to wear coats and sweatshirts as well. Even when I wrestle them into warm clothes to go outside the take it all off as soon as they can. Is it any wonder they are sick so often? It isn't as cold here as it is in other places but I wouldn't go outside barefoot! Just don't be suprised (or offended) if you come to my house and my kids are hanging out in thier undies.

Here are the boys in their natural habitat:

This is Peter happy as a little clam barefoot in February. Notice those poor little red toes.

This is the part I don't understand. I thought it was cold just being outside with no pants but Peter actually wants to stand in cold water, outside in the cold, with no pants.

Here is an updated picture of Collin's eye. As you can see it is healing nicely.


I just found a fun quiz. You answer 11 questions and it tells you which candidate most fits your views. It is a day late but still fun.
