It’s probably mean to be laughing at this, but I am finding Little Brother & the Street Urchins hilarious as they try to retrieve a 4-inch diameter Nerf basketball from the exact center of a 21-foot diameter pool. I’m not sure how long the pole is, but I know their arms are too short to make this work.
This is what happened after I sent them to play OUTSIDE, since they were tearing up my family room. 9-year-old boys denied “after-lunch recess” because of rain get pretty rambunctious, let me tell you.
(That’s Little Brother in the center, with pole. It comes within a few inches of the ball, but not quite far enough.)
