Spring Break

Why hello, there! We've been Spring Breaking this week.

Bike riding, lots of it. We've logged lots of hours at the empty school parking lot.

Oh! And here's some news. This is the same girl who made several tear-filled pleas over the last several months that we puh-leaaase put her training wheels back on because she is nuh-eeeever going to learn to ride a two-wheeler, it's just too huh-aaaard. Guess what she figured out how to do on Monday?

Yesterday, we went to an egg drop at a friend's house. Everyone brought recycled materials and the kids used them to protect a hard-boiled egg.

Working on the first construction.

After the eggs were dropped, everyone checked to see if they had any cracks. The materials used for each round had to be thrown away, giving everyone limited resources for the following rounds.

Drop #2.

Going ...

Going ...

Unhappy with the landing.

Cleaning up after Round #2 ... the kids all came running out to collect their egg packages.

This was a lot of fun, though somewhat chaotic. I think there were about a dozen kids participating. It was cool to see what they came up with and what they thought would work.
