'the construction site'

Quincy is in charge. This is mostly him dictating to the others....
"Off to the construction site!! Let's go guys! We need gloves! ....'I don't want gloves' says someone else....You need them! It's messy work! Look at this construction site hammer! Is this loud work or what? YOU!!, Hayden, take this...we're building up the bridge. No Jacob....this is the part where you don't have to have these anymore. Let's get a move-on guys!! Everyone grab some of those!! We need to stabilizer it!! Hey, this isn't a jungle gym!! It's a Bridge!!"
I love that he needed to stabilizer it :) and he did. and they walked back and forth on that bridge...broke it down...and built it back up, all morning. Such builders they are.

back to school

I love the beginning of a new school year.....
This isn't just glueing down colored pasta.....Here is what is being said. "look's all shiney! I made it shiney. I filled it all in with glue. I wrote my name!!! The colors are falling. Look, the glue is making the colors go this way." Of course I add in with 'oh, yes, the grooves on the pasta are filling up with glue. I wonder what it will look like when it is dry. What do you think it will look like? Yes, the color is bleeding off. Why do you think the color is bleeding off like that?
Time for the little people school house and busses. Lot's of busses!!!
