We woke up to a beautiful day this morning - blue sky, 55 degrees already.
I tell everyone that it is going to be even warmer than yesterday (which means maybe 70 - 75 degrees).
Abraham says, "Let's make a water slide."
I ask him what he has in mind and he explains it all to me.
He talks away to Emily (he doesn't limit his expectations of her because of her physical age of 2 1/2, like I think so much of the world does without thinking about it). He tells Emily his plans and she talks about a bathing suit and he tells her not yet, it has to get warmer first but they have lots of work to do in the meantime.
Sarah steps inside from her own work outside of separating the broody chicken, the rooster and a couple of other hens in a separate coop to see if hatched chicks may be possible in three weeks.
Abraham quickly shares with Sarah his plan for the day and out the door all three of them go.
It is just 8:24 am.
Instead of sitting at the table being told what they need to learn they are outside problem solving (I know I will hear some shouts at some point when they are struggling to work together.)
Not only do they figure out a way to work together, but they are also trying to figure out how to make a water slide as we don't have a store bought one.
It will be interesting and maybe at some point they will give up but just maybe they will do it.
