[day 221 ... aug 9]

The boys found a (air-propelled) rocket launcher in the garage while I was gone and have been loving sending the foam rockets waaaaay up in the air. They stay up an amazingly long time - 5-10 seconds at least. Just when you think a tree branch has captured the rocket, down it plummets.

This is Niall looking up to see if he can tell where the rocket is. Not easy to tell, with all the tree branches in the way.

Inevitably the rocket eventually does get stuck on a branch and the fun is over until the wind blows it down again. I guess that's part of the excitement: it's risky!
