For Saturday Snapshot - Two shades of Blue:
The first is art-work by my little girl almost two years ago now.
The second is a photo taken by my dad while he was stationed at work in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, about four years ago.
For Quote It over at Freda's:
Albert Einstein said - “If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”
And then he explained relativity like this - “When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.”
two more weeks till holidays start...
excited boys ready for sawdust shop..
NaBloPoMo has no prompts on the weekends :) - they are for free writing..
We are off to the Sawdust Shop tomorrow – well, at least dad is headed there with our scout and his friend. We had an extra kit that his friend will be using to build his first derby car. We are into our third year of Pinewood Derby and so looking forward to it. The excitement starts the moment the boys receive their kits – this was a month ago now – and lasts till the date of the Derby – which is in late January!!
I usually end up getting the boys in my den to the sawdust shop in early January. This time around, I wanted to be done with the designing of the car as we have a lot more requirements to work on as Webelos scouts.
We do not have our designs finalized yet (!) but we still have Saturday morning for that.. and then once afternoon is here, it is one excitement filled hour of sawing, drilling, sanding, and more in a workshop with powertools (and responsible adults too, of course!).
So, yes, there are two excited boys ready for their sawdust shop adventure tomorrow.
