Not with a 10 foot pole!

Stand back! There are not many two and a half year olds who can swing a stick like Benjamin Jon! He is up to a duel, let me tell ya.
He wrestled this fallen Aspen sapling away from Sophie and went into an imaginary sword fight with everything in the yard! He wasn't angry, but he was quite serious.

We kept our distance as Ben swung it around mightily with his strong little 37 inch frame.

He poked at the half-frozen ground like he was harpooning a fish!

He held it out like it were a Light Saber and the Force was with him!

He fearlessly jousted the big spiky Spruce!

Then, as if he were laying it to rest, he drug the sapling back to it's place in the Aspen stand and walked away victorious.


  1. A boy, a good stick and his dog in the sunshine. What more could you ask for? A perfect way to spend the day.

  2. Boys and sticks and dogs--go together!
