Rocket Launch

October 11th, 2009 by matt

Ben’s Cub Scout den had a rocket launch today. Grace also had a hike with her Brownies but I only have pictures of Ben and his rocket.


Even though it was a cold Wisconsin afternoon, the turnout was fantastic.  Ben’s rocket held up great through two launches.  Here he is showing off his craft.


USA Geography Grace

Grace is finishing a map unit in her second grade class and she was doodling at home.  I took a picture of her map of the good ol’ USA.


She later completed the map, including New York, Virginia and Georgia.  She also colored everything in rainbows, its quite pretty.

Yes, I play cribbage.  On my phone.  Frequently.  I’ve never got or seen a 29, but here is a 28 (with Jack) I couldn’t resist sharing.


Will moves up to the high chair

October 9th, 2009 by matt

Will wasn’t sure about the big boy chair at first, and Max was downright furious we put his little brother in Max’s high chair.  Will adapted quickly and is a champion eater of baby food.  His favorites are sweet potatoes, mixed vegetables and bananas.


Max also relaxed right away.  He now has a place in his booster chair at the table with the big kids!
