A few weeks ago the boys and I headed to the fabric store togetherto pick out the material for their furture Super hero capes. Luckily, we were able to find two different “doggy”printed fabrics in each of their favorite colors: orange and green. A few nights of sewing and the two of them were official decked and ready to be “Fantatsic!”

I love watching the briliant transformation a simple cape can bring to their play-time. Whether it is eir n-blown realms of imaginary worlds or just a bit of air-guitar while listening to the radio in their new kid-size Jeep, well..it is all nothing short of spectacular.

I caught Jude standing gaurd agains oncoming cars like Superman, legs planted firm and hands on hips in the center of our front yard.

I watched both boys hit the power-jolt on their “jet boots” as they flew into top gear and circled the backyard/sideyard/porch steps/ front yard/ porch….

And I even witnessed a peculiar contemplative spirit overtake Ambrose as hew walked, monk-like in small circles in the side yard with his hands clasped in what he confirmed to Jude as “prayer” before he finsihed up and ran back over to hop into the Jeep and zoom off into their next adventure. Unexpected? yes. Fabulous and hilarious? Absolutely.
