Put On Your Thinking Cap

This morning, Shannon and I got up early and went for a walk. It was wet and mushy on our gravel road due to the rain last night, and there was a pretty brisk breeze. We walked for fifteen minutes, then turned around and walked home for another fifteen minutes. Each day we'll try to get a little farther in fifteen minutes before turning back. Yellow Dog and Sadie thought it was great fun, and came back very muddy. They like to wrestle in the ditches and chase birds through the fields.
When we got home we decided to make some donuts. This is a rare occurrence in our home. Partway through the process the girls decided to "help" a little too much, so Jackson took them in to the other room and made crafts with aluminum foil. They made masks and boots first. Then Chase helped Katie make a hat out of aluminum foil. When the donut mess was cleaned up and everyone was full, it was time to get back to school work. Colton confiscated Katie's hat and dubbed it his thinking cap. He was very excited and did three math pages with it on.

"I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge and discretion." Proverbs 8:12
