School Projects March 17, 2008

When the kids started school I knew that it was inevitable that we would have to do the “school projects” with them. What I didn’t realize was how awesome my dear hubby was. We have had 2 projects this year and he has went above and beyond the call of duty on each! The first was a Mardi Gras float for Lainey. In the pic it may just look like a normal float, but what you can’t see is that he has made it blink. When she was in the parade she just flipped a switch and BAM she was blinking. It was so cute. Needless to say she won First Place for the whole school 🙂 The next project was to build a Leprechaun trap for St. Patrick’s Day. This one was for Will. A picture wouldn’t do so I have a YouTube video of it so you can get the full affect 🙂
