The Chicken Doctor


The Architect


The Blue Devil

My husband came home with this book for our boys.

My oldest has been toting it around with him and telling me all the wonderful things in its pages. I’m not allowed to read it….it’s for boys. Together the two of them found this page.

They decided the best way to spend a Saturday was to make go-cart, so off to the hardware store they went.

They came home with most of the supplies, my husband never gets everything the first time, but it only took two more trips before they had all the parts they needed.

You can’t build anything unless you have power tools and

a PEZ dispenser.

Let’s take a station break to talk about shoes that are not allowed in my house because they smell like a dead body. If I see them in my house one more time it will only be because the boy wearing them has decided he no longer wants to participate among the living!

But, these are cute little boy shoes, they can come in the house and tromp around and beg for candy and crawl on my bed and then flop down and scream until the cows come home, but their so cute that you can’t help but love them.

And now back to our regular scheduled programming. Here’s how you make a go-cart, you will need:

Some Wood, 4 wheels, tools, a boy and a man, some old paint and a hardware store.
Hammer some stuff, drill the wood, slap on the wheels…

Paint it blue and name it The Blue Devil.

Then ride it down the drive way and crash…..several times.
