End of the year means end of the year projects. Which means a whole lot of time going into those projects. The entire kindergarten makes cardboard cars and takes them to the Drive-in movie at school. We did the same project for Hallie and I was kicking myself for not keeping it and having Hunter repaint it.
My next thought was to build a car out of wood so I can use it for the next kids – but I couldn’t figure out how to make it light enough that he could carry it on his own.
Hunter and I went to Home Depot to pick up some supplies. It was a Saturday and I was wondering how I was going to fit everything in. When I got home Steve was willing and ready to go. I’ve become so accustomed to doing everything without him, so to have him home on a Saturday and having the time to help was totally foreign. I let those two go at it and I’m so glad I did. I often get to help with school projects but Steve doesn’t and he actually quite enjoys it.
They decided on a rocket as opposed to a car. Rockets go faster and they have more buttons than cars do.
Hunter painted the whole thing by himself, including the USA on the top.
He was pretty proud of the control panel. He explained what each button did – he really thought it through!
