1st school project for Nolan
This week is "take care of your pet week" at school for Nolan. He picked out a dog to have as his pet. It is a plastic yellow lab named Cheyenne. (he named her) They are learning the responsibilities of being a pet owner. He came home Tuesday with his dog and said he wanted a bed for his dog. We made a small bed out of an old sock and a top of a jewelry box. He also said he wanted a doghouse....well, that would have to be my DH job!! He is the carpenter in the family!
They started by finding a piece of cardboard. DH shaped it into a house and even put siding and shingles on the roof made of cardboard. Nolan had fun helping his Daddy with this. He was so proud. He took the doghouse they made into school and shared it with the other kids. Last night they painted the doghouse blue and red. Nolan's favorite colors! Here are pictures of the work in progress.
Nolan is taking after his Daddy with projects. He was so focused on making sure it was right.
I don't know who had more fun... Nolan or his Daddy! LOL
HARD AT WORK!!!
Now Braydon was very interested at first..... here is Braydon after he realized he wasn't going to get to paint the doghouse!
Here is the finished product!!!! He can't wait to take it into school to share with his friends!
