Rocket Man

As promised, here are the pictures from our recent adventure to infinity and beyond. All of these kids have a little rocket science running through their blood, and Matt is all too happy to encourage their interest. He gave Spencer this model rocket for his birthday and they built it together. Then a few weeks ago we found some open space and tested it out.

Here is the whole group setting up the launch pad.
Here is Spencer after getting the rocket ready for launch.
Ready for countdown:
Matt bought two different size rocket motors. This is the launch using the smaller one:

And this is the launch using the bigger one:

What fun! Gosh- that's the stuff childhood should be made of. Thank you for sharing and letting us all be a part of it!

And I have to add- seeing Spencer run in that second one brought tears to my eyes again. What joy!
