Haunted Birdhouses

We took the boys to Lowe's a few weeks ago for a workshop.  They got to build a haunted birdhouse.  Lowe's supplied everything, the kit, the googles, the tools, an apron for the boys to keep, a patch for finishing the project.
They both had a great time.  Kaiden was very precise, following the directions exactly.  He can also drive a nail in as well if not better than his Gram.

Trevin was pretty darn good with the hammer also.  He wasn't quite strong enough and did need some help from Tito.  He was very proud of himself.

The finished product. 
A good time was had by all, we will be coming back for more projects.

Sunday School

Trevin is old enough for Sunday School this year.  He was a little apprehensive about going, but I stayed with him and he did great.
The first Sunday was a nationwide Lutheran Service day, so the kids made these stained glass crosses to give to a local nursing home.

First Grade

I am not sure how this happened, but Kaiden started first grade at the end of August.  I asked him last week how he like first grade and he said he liked 2 things.  I was expecting lunch and recess, but he told me "First I like that my school has great teachers like Miss Free and Miss Jensen (his K and 1st grade teachers) but I really really like math!

Vacation Bible School

While their parents were on vacation, VBS started.  They had a camp theme.

We had the boys for a few days this summer when their parents went on vacation.  One of the things they always want to do is go to the Museum of Nature and Science.  They have their favorite places we have to visit each time.  One of them is the animal dioramas. 
They have a new feature - it is hard to tell but the floor has a projected river with fish. They are trying to catch them.
And of course they have to visit the discovery zone - there are so many things to do here, but I think they like the water the best.
Tito and I wanted a picture of them in front of the bears.  This statue has been there since he and I were little and visited the museum.
