Boy ingenuity

John and I were sitting on the couch this morning. The boys had been wrestling while I was in the shower, and though John wanted a break, they wanted to continue the match. So - most of the wrestling was taking place on the couch and the boys were alternately ending up on the floor, mostly on their heads. As a distraction I suggested they gather the pillows in the house to jump on. Within minutes they had 15 in the living room, stacking the pillows on top of each other, jumping off one stack onto another. We have this giant bear and he was on the very top. Eli was assuring Mr. Bear that them jumping on him "wouldn't hurt." The pillow stack is now higher than the couch. John looked at me and said, "This is boy ingenuity at it's best: let's see how stupid we can make this."
