To plan and to execute.
My father-in-law was in town this last weekend again. What makes this so special is how this affects my boys. All of them, including my husband.
They all share a connection much deeper than genetics. They study. They strategize. They plan.
They pour over maps, deciphering trails and roads, trying to find the best routes to take on their trips together.
My father-in-law is retired Army. Colonel Robert H. Pantier, in fact; graduate of West Point. That love of deciphering and planning is planted deep in this family of men.
And this is how the boys carry it out.
Yes, that’s right.
Planning attacks and standing firm, even with nerf bullets headed mercilessly toward your knee.
It’s an added bonus to have a Bumblebee Transformer mask with built-in goggles as your secret protective gear.
Also an added bonus to execute your retreat.
All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.
I’m pretty sure that was what The ‘Fish was thinking.
