A little girl and her weapons!

Miss J is mostly "all girl" she loves to play with dolls, have tea parties, play dress up and help in the kitchen.  However, she does love her weapons!

Recently, after coming in from playing outside she was heard saying "Oh no!  I've left my weapons outside!"  On that particular day her weapons consisted of a sword and a pop gun.

Daddy is so proud, and so am I!  You see we see weapons not as agents of violence and destruction, but as tools.  Knives are in use daily for everything from cooking, opening boxes, yard work and various other cutting jobs around our house.  Guns are viewed as tools as well, they are to be used for hunting and self defense (not to mention battle, we are a military family ya know ;) ).  We start teaching safety and respect with these tools early on, even with toys.  We study history as well and the kids see how these tools have been used in the past, how they were made, and how they have changed over the years.
