Bigger boys still playing with cars

One day, maybe even one day soon, these boys won’t be loading their backpacks down with dozens of matchbox cars, hauling them out to the crag with all the pokey parts digging into their backs through their backpacks, creating detailed mazes of roads and parking lots and vrooming their motors with noticeable accuracy to the real deal, while Paul and I suss out the crux on a nearby boulder. You sure you guys don’t want to try this one? Nah, they say. Too absorbed in their little boy play. One day soon, they may actually decide that climbing is more fun than pushing matchbox cars around in dirt. And when that day comes I will be both sad and happy at the same time.
