My Sweet LIttle Future Weapons Dealer

Remember I told you that there was a picture floating around from Saturday's Scavenger Hunt that would not only make me look like a booger, but would show off my extreme artistic talents? Well...it surfaced on Facebook yesterday...

...and it will come as no surprise that I'm raising kids who have given up on regular spring break activities like Trampolining...


...and moved on to homemade weapons...
Mai: "Mama, wanna know how to make a crossbow out of ordinary household items?"
Me: "ok"

Mai then explains to me how to make a weapon she learned about on YouTube and then proceeded to actually make it all by herself.




Thank God Spring Break is OVER!
How 'bout you guys? Was your Spring Break all you wanted it to be?

My spring break starts at 7:20 tomorrow night, which is when I leave my night class. That means spending my entire birthday in class, first teacher institute then actual class. :P

On the plus side, then I get 5 days off including one to myself bc all of my family will be back at work/school! :)

And that picture?? Classic Julie! Love it! :)

LOL. Oh wow. the things you can find on youtube! I have to play the video, but am afraid to. The timing has to be right unless I want a crew with cross bows around here!! I made some little bows for the boys recently and Nathan was trying to stalk turkeys in our yard. It only shot about 5 yards and very weakly though :)

Hope you are doing well! Still planning to be in Eugene on April 29th?

We watched it! Now...I need to find the how-to video :)

Love the reaction from both of you when the arrow shot!

Boogie jokes and pictures are always funny, no matter how old you are :-).

Great photo! And I know someday either of my children is quite capable of coming to me with a video like that.

I have to say, I'm excited about my kids going to kindergarten next year, but not so much about all the vacation time.....Our preschool is closed only on federal holidays....

Oh hey, I know the feeling!! I have two boys, 9 and 8 and they wake up breathing the idea of making weapons. Mostly to use against the dogs but yeah, it's neverending in my house!

Julie said...

Awesome! She is just using her creativity! And don't tell anyone if I look around my living and dining room right now I can see a BB gun and a mini cross bow...and probably a couple of knives...all belonging to my almost 18 year old son. :)

I think you might consider monitoring your children's internet usage - ha!! She is certainly resourceful. Sounds like a fun Spring Break!!
