Bears Are Scary, but God is With Me

 Wacky Wednesday was at our house this morning.  Hadley came over.  She was sharing her cereal with Cole.  They were being so sweet with each other. 
This week we went on a Bear Hunt.  We like to make it seem like a big deal so we really talk it up.  I started by telling the boys that we were going on a bear hunt.  Brady Reed cracks me up because he's four and super into it.  He started shaking with excitement and said he could run really fast (I guess that's an essential quality if you're going on a bear hunt).  Then all the boys ran around the house for a few minutes proving how fast they were.  Then we watched a YouTube video.  It was the song "Going on a Bear Hunt" and it had real pictures.  It starts out by saying "We're going on a bear hunt, Are you afraid?"  I told them in the Bible God says, "Do not be afraid because I am with you"-Isaiah 41:10.  The kids were really into it.  Then it showed the picture of the bears eyes and that's when we began to terrify them again this week.
Cole even helped me hide the stuffed bear before everyone got here and he was still scared to death.  He clung to me.
We had little paw prints hung up with numbers.  They found the numbers in the correct sequence and it led them to the bear!
They were cautious the entire time though.
After they found the bear they continued to hide it from each other and find it over and over.

Apparently Brady went home and made clues for his dad to find a bear.

We enjoyed the warm weather and ate some Teddy Grahams and Gummy Bears outside.

Then Cole decided to strip down and pee in the grass.  I guess the other boys thought that looked fun and before we knew it all four boys had their pants down and were going to the bathroom.
I hear Cole say, "Let's pretend we're on a beach!"  I look over and he only has his short, little tshirt on.  No pants!  Brady told him he didn't want to see his peepee (it really was offensive) so I told Cole he had to put his pants back on.  He pulled his underwear back on himself, inside out, and a little twisted.
My brother came over to get Hads later and says (with a very serious face), "Looks like Cole's enjoying the warm weather".
Hard to believe it's February and the boys had half their clothes off.  I was even a little worried about a sunburn.
I had the joy of holding baby Easton!  HOW ADORABLE!!
Brewer came over this afternoon for a little while too.  It's funny to hear him and Cole discuss things.
 When Brad got home Cole told him all about the bear hunt.  Brad asked if he was scared and Cole said, "No, God is with me".  LOVE IT that he remembered that (even though he was terrified).
 He took Brad on a bear hunt after dinner.  It was dark so they even got to use a flashlight.
 It's very tiring hunting bears all day.
