Hat's off to my oldest.

Came home for supper tonight and it was delicious. My wife made spaghetti and meat balls, with garlic bread. She waited until I was finished to tell me the exciting stuff.

My boys were out back playing and they decided to take a break on the wellhouse. My oldest(11) saw a young bear at the apple tree, maybe 20 feet from the wellhouse. He told our youngest(5) to shut up and go to the door. He stayed until his brother made it around the corner. He then made his way safely back into the house.

I'm hard on the boy, only because he's the oldest. I want so badly for him to understand the man he needs to be, should I not be here tomorrow.

Today I realized that he's up to the task.
