No, war is not fun, Killing is not always the answer. BUT…I think Lynn has hit the nail on the head here. The boys are outside playing instead of sitting on the couch rotting their brains! As kids, we played war games too and in it most subliminal manner, it honed our social skills, taught us to work together, improved our tactical skills not only for fighting and playing , but for daily observations needed to get through life! Kudos Lynn!
