Outnumbered

Wednesday saw me outnumbered by 5 to 1 on the male / female ratio front.  What to do with a house full of boys?  Well, we made aeroplanes from balsa wood and a sheet of styrofoam.  Other ingredients included - copious amounts of gaffer tape and a little nut and bolt taped to the nose to balance the whole ensemble.

Ready for the first flight!  
The concentrated calm that overtook these four little bundles of energy was a sight to behold.  They cut and sanded and watched and waited patiently.

Up, up and away
Last flight
And then they threw and retrieved and ran and threw and ran some more as if their lives depended upon it until the sun began to dip.

It was a beautiful thing to be part of.
