Is it Fun or Corruption?

Well I vote for both, but the children always know they have to have adult supervision when playing. Earlier this summer O built a potato cannon. But it was having a hard time firing after many different types of fuel we learned that static guard is the best and fires great. The kids love it and shooting at targets, they play at who can get the most points. Finally we put a laser pen on it so that it is better to aim. We have shot it at the deer that come into our garden but they still don't move, I guess that they are to used to humans and noise to be really cautious.


Here is where I am going to Share those moments that just come whether it be night or day and we take the time to seize every opportunity-

Just a quick chuckle; I was putting my sons down for the night and little Bogan asked for another drink of water, and I said no you have already had a large glass and used the bathroom-he said oh yeah-so I chuckled and said haha your plans to stay awake have been foiled, and he said yeah Mom you folded my plans.

The other night my boys were playing with their legos and when I walked by, PT had made a pyramid and asked me where the little guy was that he had, I said I don't know? And then he showed me he had hidden it under the pyramid-I thought and then grabbed that moment- I went and got out the history book and opened up to the ancient Egypt era when pyramids were built and why it was similar to what he did. He was amazed at the significance. We read and read and learned about them for 2 days.
