Yes, he tried. Then, according to his story, Josiah showed him how it's done.
Josiah has a completely different story, of course, and says that Robert needs to just tell the truth and admit that he did it.
In other bear news, here is Grace (2 years old) singing the first verse of "Bears" by Andrew Peterson and Randall Goodgame:
What Grace is singing:
Bears, bears, got no cares.The last line should really be "To catch you and eat you up," but I think we will all agree that it's best she not know that. :) You can find the real lyrics and listen to the real song by going here and looking for the children's CD "Slugs, Bugs & Lullabies." I prefer the songs that Andrew sings, but the kids go for the ones about bears and tigers that Randall sings. Be sure to listen to Andrew's other music. He is a very talented songwriter and storyteller, and uses his gifts to the glory of God. And if he's ever performing anywhere near you...GO!
Bears don't drink from a cup.
Sharp teeth and claws and furry paws
To catch you and mess you up.
