This year’s project was all about Lego boats. We made 10 boats and then timed them to see how long they would float. When the fist boat was still going strong after 7 minutes in the water, we decided to shift gears and see how many pennies each could hold before sinking. Sam was proud that his own boat could hold the most pennies, while his dad’s boat tipped over immediately and sank.
Why all the cats? Sam found some awesome cat tape at the craft store. He had to have it to decorate his poster. Also, he says, cats don’t like getting wet, so they need good boats!
Sam’s been taking skating lessons for the last 6 weeks, and I can’t believe how far he’s come! Here he is doing his “tricky tricks”
We visited Santa at the Museum of Flight this year. Sam said he wanted “toys”, and Santa asked if a Barbie doll would be alright. There was a lot of laughter, but Santa never did get Sam to say what he wants for Christmas.
I’m playing piano again, and Sam has decided that he’d like to learn. He told me that he’d like his first piece to be the Prelude I’m working on, but he agreed to settle for this:
We baked our own gingerbread houses last year, and Sam decided that we needed to stretch ourselves a bit and make a really big one in 2017. Here it is!
Covered in vines
Sam made a stove, table, chairs, and Christmas tree for the inside
He was supposed to be sleeping, but he made this instead. It’s hard to get mad about it.
Sam’s latest creation. I love that he still enjoys making these
