“If you never did you should.
These things are fun
and fun is good.” ― Dr. Seuss

There was Friday night Bingo at his school....

 and a slackline on Saturday...

and a Pinewood Derby on Sunday...where he won first place in his pack and will be racing in the districts (second year in a row).  He's very excited.

*In case you're wondering how the wee boy made such a cool Spongebob...we printed an image and colored the back with graphite to make our carbon paper.  He taped the image to the car and traced over the lines with a hard pencil to transfer it onto the car.  I demonstrated how to use the paint marker on one side of the car while he repeated the steps on the other side.  Then he used a paint marker to color in the details and make the outlines.  Paint markers give kids more control than a paint brush.  He decided to elongate the mouth to represent that the car is going so fast that it stretched Spongebob's head.  He had lots of practice because on our first attempt we finished the car with varnish and the paint bled so it had to be re-sanded and painted a second time.
