Meeting of the minds part 2.

This was totally spontaneous. The older one, inspired by finding an old notebook of mine (just another failed attempt at journaling) said, "let's write a mystery!" My other boy grabbed the tray to organize the papers and when she saw there was a buzz of activity the little one grabbed her chair and planted herself right in the middle.

Older one scribbled furiously in what he calls cursive, filling the page then handing his younger brother the pages to organize in the tray. The baby pretended to file the papers as well and did everything in her power to test the 4 year old's patience (which admittedly is not that much). They then distributed the papers to each other and walked around talking about mysteries, robberies and bad guys in 20s tough guy speak.
