Boredom

Boredom is the mother of invention - at least to Aidan.

  1. Hello, I found your blog through Caryn Turner's blog--I think we have a lot in common! Do you go to Bethlehem?

  4. Hey did you know that there are competitive teams that do this? When I signed Noah up for fencing there was a team that builds towers with "cups" -really I'm serious and I thought what in the world? when I saw it, I just didn't know that some kids are geared for that!!! If you want more info you can check out district 191 community ed!!!!
    It looks great Aidan!

  5. Wow, who knew?? I'll let Aidan know. He might be interested as long as it doesn't interfere with football season.

  6. Ok,
    I know what would have happened next in our house -- who got to do the honors??!!

    Actually, we used to host small group at our house and I was too cheap to keep buying cups (we had about 10 couples and children -- sometimes 45 people total) So I'd wash them and that's what it would look like! Inevitably someone would "bump" them...

  7. Jean,
    Dad was home :) so the cups were neatly put away by the builder.

    I am glad to hear that I am not the only person alive who washes disposable plastic cups. How about utensils?

  8. Yup -- but only because they can go in the dishwasher!! (I have the nicer "plastic ware"...)

    Unfortunately, they can only withstand so many washes, eventually they just self destruct.
    But I get an "A" for effort!!
