Teaching the boys

We three intrepid mamas took our gang of five girls off to the great outdoors today; we sent them into the fields, lakes, and adventure grounds, and we left them.

We hear that they picked up some boys and taught them a thing or two about life.

Like, how to make a bow and arrow from willow and bark, how to stroke nettles without getting stung, and how to swear in French.

I hear from Shark that one of the 8-year old lads looked at her from cautious eyes, and whispered in blushing admiration, You're really clever. For reward, Shark taught him how to weave with bull rushes and how to dig river mud.

Boys, it's time to get out more.

Amazons. Definitely the Amazons.

It's easy to impress little boys who don't get out much. Wait until they meet boys of their own age. How will they manage then?
