                     Kevin having Fun

Have you ever thought about how much fun you can have with a simple board, aka a boogie board, a 4 wheeler, a rope, and a ditch filled with water? These boys found a way to have an amazing time. I was even a little jealous. This to me shows the ingenuity of the brain and the resourcefulness of a couple of boys. It is fascinating what we can do if we put our mind to it. No one had to give them the idea or the help to play like this. They came up with the idea on their own. 
However, I wonder if they will figure out Math, History, English and Theology as easily on their own? I doubt it. These subjects are not perceived as "fun" so they will not have the same appeal to these boys. This is my challenge. I have to make them understand how these subjects will impact their lives...and get them to the fun they want. Not an easy task I assure you...none the less, a task I am eager and willing to tackle. Pray for me in this endeavor.

I'm jealous too! That looks like a lot of fun! Always glad to see kids out doors having fun instead of in front of video games. Your task is not an easy one but in the long one will be a rewarding one.

Thanks for your comment Chrissy.
I was glad I let them do that. When the boys asked you can imagine I was a little hard to convince at first. Then I thought about them being boys, and looking for adventure, and well you can see the results. I was a little worried but when I saw what they were doing, it just looked like fun, but to hard for me. :(
