If it wasn't bad enough that Scott drove his car into our garage about two weeks ago, with his bicycle attached to the top of the car, it only gets worse for him. The car was fine, and the bike survived, but the top of Scott's car on the sides where the bike rack attaches is really dinged in quite a few places.
The boys heard about geocaching recently are are in love with hunting for things in the woods. Scott searched a bit for a GPS system and finally decided to borrow one from a friend who no longer uses his. Scott and seth set out last night to geocache at a local park. Enticed by Seth to play at the park, Scott sat down on some type of park equipment and completely broke the GPS in his back pocket when he sat on it!
Trying to make the most of a sucky situation, he played with Seth at the park for a while. He spun and spun Seth on something and then put him in the car to go home. (Yes, moms, we all know what comes next.) Seth threw up his spaghetti dinner in the back seat of the car. Scott pulled over and made Seth get out and finish at the side of the road. At a graveyard.
Seth came home all excited to tell me about the broken GPS and barfing at the graveyard. Seriously, as tired as I am of playing with my kids right now, Scott needs a vacation worse. I feel so sorry for him. Well, not sorry enough to clean his car for him, I do have limits.
Over at Splitcoast there was recently a challenge to make something in miniature. I stamped the bird from Natural Beauty, colored it with copics, cut it to 1 inch square, and mounted it onto a piece of Acrylic by Tim Holtz, called Fragments. I then added it to a cord to make a necklace. If I could buy small fragments only, I'd make a ton of these. The problem is that the fragments come in various sizes in the box and I really don't know what I'll do with the hugs (3x3) pieces or the tiny pieces. The idea to make these came from Rebecca Oehler, who is a goddess of decorative items.
