On Saturday, we took the boys to the Home Depot to build "something useful" as part of the Wolf Cubs achievement... Race Cars are useful, right? I think Thomas the Tank Engine would think they are useful. Very useful. The boys loved it...I can't for-the-life-of-me figure out why we haven't taken advantage of this free activity before. I have a feeling we'll be doing it again... Maybe the next project will be even more useful? Stay tuned.
This week Wilson's school is honoring Dr. Seuss. Today was crazy-sock-day... this is about as crazy as boys' socks get, I think. Wil wore jeans to school so he doubts anyone will even see them.
And this morning at breakfast, Walker said he "prayed in my head."
So, Wilson prayed for himself & me. After Wilson finished praying, Walker added something on, "and please help me not to sneak any candy from the candy bowl today."
Wilson and I both smiled.
(background: Last week Walker got out the step ladder so he could help himself to the candy bowl (on the top shelf, inside a cupboard.) I walked into the dining room, not aware that Walker was up on the counter and startled when I saw him moving, which made him jump and almost fall. He got busted after that.)
Later this morning, as I thought about Walker's little add-on-prayer, I thought about how often I neglect to ask God to help me avoid temptations. Such a simple, obvious thing to do; and I often don't.
So, I guess, in a round-about-sort-of-way, I'm glad Walker got into the candy bowl last week.
