He is Smart and Creative!

But sorry girls he is only 5 years old.

There are times that my little dude has come up with some of the most creative ideas. Like the Snow Shack. And the time that he wanted to go to Home Depot because he needed stuff for a project. He wanted to build a red house as apposed to the green house that Daddy was building in the back yard. Just the other day he wanted to sell PB&J's to the neighborhood for $1.50. He even convinced the neighbor to take him to the grocery store to help him buy some hand cuffs so he and his friend could plays cops and robbers. Every day there is something.

Sometimes I just HAVE to follow along. We took him to Home Depot and helped him get what he needed to for his project. We let him do all the planning for the snow shack and look where it got him. Tomorrow we will be following along with another of his little plans. Dinosaur Hunting.

Today I could tell that he was up to something. He had been looking through dinosaur books and marking some pages with sticky notes. He had been gathering items from around the house and packing them in his backpack. He even made a paper clip compass for every member in the family. When I asked what was going on he told me that he was taking the family on a dinosaur hunt tomorrow. Daddy and I had a little talk about it and we are totally intrigued. We are going to take him up Butterfield Canyon and see what it is all about. It is daddy's day off, so this should be fun!

Don't worry, I am going to take my camera.
