Learning to fly!

Well, the kids have been bringing home paper airplanes from daycare for the past couple of weeks, and Sam decided that it was time to teach Monkey how to make his own! Bug decided that she wanted to learn as well!! I was making dinner, seasoned chicken, mashed potatoes, and corn. Sam taught them the fundamentals of flight, such as drag and such. After they were done with their lessons, they went outside to test what they had learned! I think they had alot of fun even tho it was roasting hot outside. The heat index for today was 105, and at 8:15 this morning the temp was already 87! They flew their airplanes for about 20 minutes or so, then Bug helped me set the table. We ate dinner. Monkey, who is a self professed potato-hater, ate 2 big servings of mashed potatoes! I may or may not have bribed him with a quarter to eat the 2nd helping, but he ate them! Bug, true to self, ate about 4 bites and "I'm full!" escaped. School starts in a week, and I feel so worried about it! The kids are in a completely new place, they don't know anyone, it's a brand new school. Maybe, I'm just being protective!
Anyways! I need to get to bed! I've got an early day tomorrow!

He was actually eating the raw potatoes too! When I said something about it he said "Well, I'm starved, so, I'd eat anything!" LOL He's such a character!
