Sailing! Sailing !

Our Cub Scout Pack made a whole fleet of these little boats and had a very fierce competition blowing them across the floor! The boys really enjoyed this one. Print out a few and have your own kitchen table regatta.

Hello and hello!

I have a long list of things to be thankful for, big things like family, kind friends, and everyone being healthy… something for which I’m especially grateful! I’m very happy that you are reading this letter right now. There are also lots of little things that make my life wonderful that I’m thankful for, hot tea, drawing paper, TiVo, old books, minty dental floss, soy beans and flannel sheets.

How about you? What things, big and small, are you thankful for on this fine day?
Post your list here…. http://thetoymaker.livejournal.com

I always have to dream up there against the stars.

If I don't dream I will make it, I won't even get close.
