The boys are pretty happy to have been staying with you. Not only are some of your boys the same age (or close) as them, but you always have a bunch of kids around your house, and the boys have made a lot of friends already. They also just spent two weeks at camp. While they miss their old friends and their mom and grandparents a bit, they're mostly happy.
They're also well-behaved. While Logan is normally a good, somewhat quiet kid, Mason, who tends to be more active and mischievous has also been on good manners with you. You actually spanked their dad when he was growing up, and you have permission to treat his kids the same as you do your own. For those ages, it means time outs for reminders and minor offenses, and sore bottoms when they get out of line.
This afternoon, Blake - a 17-year old who is close friends with your older boys, comes to you. He's on a schedule this evening, it's time for him to leave, taking his little brothers with him, but he can't find his youngest brother, 12-year old Aidan.
Blake assures you that he already tried Aidan's phone, but there wasn't an answer. He tells you where he already looked, so you go check the board. Sure enough, Aidan has signed out with Logan, and the two of them are 'bike riding'. You check the clock, and the two of them are late getting home, but not late enough (yet) to be in real trouble.
You're about to try Logan's phone, when yours rings. Sure enough, it's Logan.
Except it isn't Logan.
Instead, it's a police officer. There was a call about a couple of kids prowling around a vacant house. One of the boys claims that he's going to live there. You tell the officer the name of the two boys and the address, and he explains that a neighbor saw them climbing the fence, and knew that no one was living there yet, so he was sent to check. You ask him to send the two boys straight home.
Blake is ticked at Aidan, because he knew when they were supposed to leave, and he wants to know if you're going to spank them?
Even if they're more than thirty minutes late (which is normally an automatic spanking), they might have been home before that, if they hadn't had to deal with the police, so is it really fair to enforce that policy?
On the other hand, Logan, his little brother, and your boys, have been told not to go over there. They had been doing some interior and exterior work around the house, and the boys were told they weren't allowed there, unless your cousin was there.
So, who's in trouble and what's happening to them?
