It's math time and Abby and Jeremiah want to be a part of the action.  In fact, they are the only two who want anything to do with math this morning.  Not having any math of their own, they took out some counting bears.  And since Abby is learning patterns in her school time, she lined up different colored bears to "take turns" and asked Jer which bear had the next turn.

There was no response on his part.

Enter Hannah.  She is a bit annoyed that she doesn't get to play with counting bears and must work on subtraction flashcards instead.  Oh, those growing pains!  Finding an opportunity to revert back to easier concepts and show off her knowledge, she made a pattern for Abby.

It went something like this:

Red, red, purple, yellow, yellow, yellow, green, blue, purple, purple, red, yellow, orange, green.

"Okay, Abby.  What color comes next?"

Confusing much???
