Bread and Butter

If a boy asks, "What is a butter churn?" you'll have to explain how pioneers used to make butter. If you explain how pioneers used to make butter, he'll want to see a book with pictures. If you show him the book with pictures, he'll want to make his own butter. If he wants to make his own butter, you'll have to go to the grocery store to buy cream. If you go to the grocery store to buy cream, you'll have to find a jar in which to shake the cream. If you find the jar, you'll have to put the cream inside. If you put the cream inside, you'll shake and shake and shake (because boy gets tired after 30 seconds). If you shake and shake, you'll have a beautiful glob of homemade butter. If you have homemade butter, you must have hot homemade bread to put it on. If you're too tired and sick to make homemade bread (and have ripe bananas that need to be used), you'll decide to whip up a batch of banana bread. If you make banana bread and fresh butter, you'll be too tired to make dinner. If you are too tired to make dinner, you'll have to go out for pizza.

Butter making.

Butter-'churning' in action.

Levi didn't think it was fair that I got to take all the pictures.
He's not a bad photographer for a five-year-old!
