We've been in Michigan for a week and a half already. Each day has been full of visiting family and friends and seeing new things and doing fun activities. My mom allows for downtime, but in the same breath will say, "I only get my grandkids for a handful of days each year so we're going to make the most of them!"
Mr. Woodcarver demonstrated how some tools and machines worked to cut and shape wood. Then, handed the boys a small toy top (which Micah thought was an acorn), and handed it to them to keep if they could promise to share. Both boys nodded yes and in seconds were squabbling over who got to carry it in. Little sinners.
We investigated money to determine counterfeit, we learned about how machines work, and we learned how to beat a drum to call the troops together for battle. Grady Lee asked why the "army can't just use a phone to call everyone together?" Cell phones in the Civil War... that may have changed a thing or two I suppose.
Remember I said Grandma has a never-ending idea list stuck up her sleeve? Onward to enjoy Nite Lites... thousands and thousands of Christmas lights arranged around the Whitecaps baseball stadium!
