2nd grade science project

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!

Santa 2017

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.
