Big Brother really got into our singing this morning! He loves yelling "Yeehaw!" when we sing "I'm in the Lord's Army" Cowboy-Style. Little Brother likes "Happy Trails" because we pat our knees to sound like horses trotting as we sing.

For today's devotion we talked about how ranchers branded their cattle to be able to tell which ones belonged to them. I asked the question "How will people know that we belong to the Lord? What does 'God's brand' look like?" We found the answer in John 13:34-35.

Later on we read all about the branding process in Cowboys: A Library of Congress Book. We looked at many different ranch's brands and Big Brother drew some of them. He also created a couple brands of his own!

We finished reading The Wild West: An Interactive History Adventure. Today we learned about the people who went out west in search of riches. (This book has really captivated Big Brother's attention! I want to try to find some of the other books in this series.)

Much of the rest of the day was spent with Big Brother working on creating a script for a little western movie he wants to make with his LEGOs. He made up a short story about the James-Younger outlaw gang. He dictated the script to me and I wrote it down for him. Then he spent some time going through his LEGO mini-figures deciding which would play which characters in his story. He is so creative! :)

We did not have as many different activities today because Little Brother had a checkup at the pediatrician's office. (Poor little fellow got 3 different shots, but he's a trooper!)

We have really been enjoying learning as much as we can about cowboys and the wild west this week! We still have 2 more days to go. We'll see y'all on down the trail!
