Our new favorite movie for the time being is "Swiss Family Robinson". The little boy in the movie catches an elephant. This is very inspiring to a little 5-year-old engineer.
The past 2 days, Brandon has been asking me for carrots so he can catch a rabbit in our front yard. He has it all planned out. He has a bucket tied to a rope which is strung through some hooks on our tree. He wants to put the carrots in the bucket and wait quietly at the end of the rope, so when a rabbit hops into the bucket, he can pull the bucket up and have a new pet. I know it won't work, and then, I wondered, "What if he actually catches one?" Then, what am I going to do with it? :)
Yes. I bought carrots today.
