Almost every week Arnold and Gus get into an altercation. It's playful and fierce all at the same time. There is laughter, threats, silly insults, fain biting, and general fun. I can never remember why it starts and it only ends when they lie on the ground exhausted. These two have a funny relationship. They are still figuring one another out and some days it's exciting to see.
All the squealing is a call to the other children to come and participate. I love Arnold's expression as she knows Brick is about to jump and it's going to hurt as he is solidly built.
He loves to wrestling and has no idea why the girls are fighting, but he is happy to attack. He is unprepared for the tickling counter attack, but he loves the attention so he doesn't mind.
The call of the wild is too strong and two more come to join the fun. Life at our home is never dull and rarely quiet.
