Survivor Man School

The boys started gathering sticks & all for forts last night & so this morning they were all gung-ho about getting their school work done so they could get outside & get to work on their forts. Jon went so far as to even draw up his own blueprints for his! (which he gave me so I could scrapbook them ;-) He had drawings & measurements, etc. Pretty cool!He went through alot of trouble to find these 6 forked branches which he cut so they would be just the right length.
Michael in the beginnings of his fort. Teepee style!
Michael says he has dinner... A locust which he pinched the head off of...this was learned from watching Survivor Man....if you pinch the head & pull, it's pulls the stomach right on out too. Now it's ready to cook & eat. Yum! (not)Trying it out....just the right size!
Making progress...
Finally....all finished! And the view inside Michael is still working on his. He says it will be ready tomorrow. So stay tuned. ;-)
