week 4

This week was a little hectic but, it was our craft week. The kids made picture frames, wooden boats, key chains, birthday cards for Trav and magnets for grandmas picture board.

We also went to the Scout-O-Rama, the kids had lots of fun learning to walk on cans and a rope. They also learned to make fire with metal. Brayden and the neighbor boys were pretty good at it. So now, us mom's are on high alert any time we smell smoke!

You never know what little boys with all that knowledge will do :)

They did a great job sanding, painting, and gluing the boats.

I make them read the directions and do it all by themselves.

They always amaze me at what they are capable of!!!

Brayden's finished boat.

For some reason I didn't get a picture of Tyler's????

Brayden is a good big brother!

He made sure Tyler didn't fall off.

Trying to get a spark

Tyler never could get hers to light, she was a little upset

But, Brayden sure did over and over

I am not sure I like the fact he can now make fire with 2 metal objects.

Tyler did great on the cans.

I loved the look on her face

These were a little harder to balance on!
