An Abundance Of Camo

This apparently happened last year, but I just recently heard the story. It involves my sister, and my oldest nephew (who was 5 at the time of this story).

It seems that he had a camouflage jacket - a pretty nice one. He came home from school one day without it. My sister got onto him about it, hoping he'd learn to take better care of his stuff.

My sister had to go to school and trade in her two ill-gotten camouflage jackets for her son's one legit jacket. And she got to explain why she'd written her son's name in one of the extras. :)
