Water Rocket

Today when Kendon woke up from a nap he was excited to see that I had done a blog. Then he read it. I guess he wasn't too thrilled to read about and re-live our sicko week and would rather have read about the water rocket he and Connor and my dad built in Boise last weekend.

Because it was a very cool rocket and the three boys had a blast together that day and since I do everything that Kendon asks (HA!) here it is....

Here is some footage of the launch.

This video is titled:
Mom Screams Her Head Off.

I apologize.

I had good reason to be excited.
That rocket went clear up over my parent's two story home!
Very fun!

Wednesday, Kendon made these with his 11 year old scouts and they were a HIT! Here is a link to the instructions if anyone is interested.

I hope everyone is getting healthy. This round of colds and such have been lingering way past their welcome.

My boys would so dig that!!!!

Thanks for posting the instructions!

I love that Andrea wonders if Mika's leaders would be offended if she brings her own instructions to the next meeting.

I love Andrea's comments. How can I top that? Your man has some skills. Some serious skills.

You're the coolest mom. I would so be freaking out.

That was a screamer alright!! We were there when they set it off a couple of times and I was afraid it was going to land on a car and put a dent in it! I am sure the boy scouts were crazy about it!!
