Fly me to the moon

If there is one thing that you know about the boy, it is he loves to build things.  Yes, Legos are a mainstay around the ranch and the boy has come up with some pretty awesome inventions.  Ask him to help with a project that involves a hand tool, he is all in.  Ask him to help with a project that involves a power tool…you will never see a kid so eager to help out in your life!

So when the hubby brought home a ‘make it yourself’ rocket kit, the kid was beyond thrilled.  They worked for months painstakingly putting the rocket together.  Then was the difficult decision of what color paint to use.

Finally…after months of preparation, the rocket took flight.  Click here for the exciting launch!

Rest assured, the rocket was recovered and still in one piece so they can set it off again.  The boy has saved the used engine for posterity (yup, had to show it to me last night…and had me smell it…..can you smell the power mom?)

I see exciting things in the boy’s future!
