Figuring it out

Kids created an effective way to heat up some water with out burning their hands.




It worked.

Monday's lately.

Some friends of ours told us of some swim classes being held a few towns over. I know the boys have been wanting to improve their swimming, so I asked if they wanted in.
And they did!
So they have been polishing up their skills. I am really shocked with how much they have improved their techniques in just two classes. They just needed some pointers and practice and they are doing very well!

 Kaya is so thrilled with his improved stamina that he said he is kind of interested in a swim team. But only after he can swim long without tiring, he says.

 So we just have to make sure to get to the pool a lot this winter!
After swim class, we head over to a nearby park to play for a while.
 This has been a load of fun.
There was a particularly muddy day, which was extra fun.




I think we seriously mortified some of the other parents there that day.
Maybe they just don't know that it washes off?

Pit of FIRE!






It really is all about the tractor...


Just plain awesome.

Preying in the weeds






I hope they leave us with a beautiful ootheca!

Falling for my carnivores?








Or my carnivores in fall?

A day of pirates, mustaches and Indian food involving a meal worm.

Went to a really fun party.

It involved sword skills taught by piratey types,

They practiced,




and then,

the much awaited free for all!
Some how there were mustaches,


and they made them look swell.

Then there was the Indian dinner with friends.

There happened to be a meal worm, accidently.

But I kind of gobbled it down on purpose.
It tasted like a single rice krispie.
I bet pirates ate meal worms.
