The Rocketman

23 06 2008

A few weeks ago, I was able to go to Eden’s class and help with a special project: stomp rockets.
A man came (yes, the Rocketman) from a local astronautical society with all the needed supplies to build and launch paper rockets.
It was awesome.
The kids had a fabulous time, and I was impressed with how far the rockets flew. Who knew paper, tape, paperclips, a bicycle inner tube, a two-liter bottle, and a piece of pvc pipe could translate into a couple of hours of enjoyment?

Hi, Eden! Great flight.
Taking a breather from all that running

And I think it’s gonna be a long long time–

(You’re welcome. I had that song in my head the entire time we were a’rocketing).
