...post Karate Kid. They are careful not to actually hurt each other (not intentionally anyway). Silas holds his own surprisingly well. He's determined to scrap his way out from under big brothers shadow.

Mutilating a pumpkin. Mr Sensory-seeking Roman couldn't keep from squishing, squeezing, kneading, tasting, and smashing the pumpkin guts.
Mr. Sensory-Stimulation-Avoidant Silas was horrified at the suggestion that he put his hands down inside the slimy pumpkin.
Eventually we wore him down and he had fun with it.
He was the first to wash his hands though.
Now I'm off to beg for candy at our neighbors doors for candy and to deal with the inevitable sugar craze that will follow.
