The kids

So, my boys recently decided to sell their PS2 and all of their games so that they could get an Xbox 360. I let them use my Ebay account and they were off and running. It’s amazing how they managed to come together and how creative and proper their language in the item’s description was. This is from two teenage boys whose favorite thing to say is “yung man!” (yes, spelled just like that) and something about bringing wood.

The auction was an amazing success. They sold everything for almost $100 more than they thought they’d get. So, they got their Xbox AND they got Rock Band.

For those of you who don’t know, Rock Band is kind of like Guitar Hero only you have a microphone and a drum set to go along with the guitar. When you’re not playing and you’re within earshot, it’s the most annoying game on the planet. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to listen to my daughter or my boys try to hit impossibly high notes on the microphone or how many times I’ve had to listen to an impromptu drum solo.

That said, it is really nice to see my children enjoying doing SOMETHING together and not fighting.
