This blog is a way to examine my many adventures as I try to make the most of this life, and teach my boys how truly magical every moment can be. We may have ups and downs, but either way we are learning through exploration. My job is to try to make learning enjoyable so they always have a thirst for it.

Ready For Takeoff
We have boxes strewn across our house as my hubby gets ready to move to Alaska for work. It will be a long 7 months without Daddy around and can't wait until April when we will be joining him for the new chapter in our lives. "A" was desperate to build an airplane out of one of the boxes with Daddy. Airplanes are very important in our household because my hubby is a flight instructor. "A" has been around airports and small engine planes since he was born.
The airplane was completely my five year old's creation. Well, he had all the ideas and directed Daddy to do exactly as he said. Supplies were two boxes, duct tape ("A" saw it lying around and his creative juices started flowing), clear Saran wrap, glue stick, foam brushes, and tempura paint. It turned out amazing. My husband has told me about 50 times how the window with Saran wrap was all "A". The little man just keeps saying "He can't believe he made something so cool-he can't even believe it!
