Last night was the Pinewood Derby for Scouts. Alex raced as part of his pack and Daniel raced in the Outlaw class (non-Scouts). Neither of of them placed, but they had a great time and it was a great experience for them. After the races were over, we spent the night there as a "camp out" - which consisted of tents set up in the church basement and boys staying up until way after midnight.
But they had a blast.
|Putting the finishing touches on his car.|
|Very proud of his first car.|
(That's not dirt on his face. That's chapped skin.
Gross. I know.)
|He had to show off his toy too.|
|Our very own indoor tent city.|
|Basketball games on zero sleep.|
Kansas Day is coming in a few days, which is the anniversary of the day that the state became....well, a state. A local museum had some festivities to celebrate, and since I only had Daniel today we took full advantage and went and spent a few hours playing around.
|Using an antique tool to make a mess.|
|Making box turtles out of egg cartons.|
|Of course I found a quilt. Duh.|
I so wish I had the patience to do this.
|Using an old-fashioned gadget to get|
the kernels off of the cob.
|Making real kettle corn.|
|Feeding the goats.|
|Ready to work!|
|He loved that popcorn!!!|
|Oh, lookie! Another quilt!|
|And we got to take a wagon ride.|
After we got done there, we grabbed a bite to eat and then came home - and Daniel promptly fell asleep in my lap at about 5:30. I fully expect him to just sleep right through the night. Of course, I might have dozed off a bit while I was sitting here at the computer too......kind of odd to have the house this quiet so early in the evening. But I'm definitely not complaining.
