I never get anything done quickly. So it’s hard to see anything getting done when life moves so fast. But, Sunday I took over two hours and spent them making grand prix cars with the Supremes.
For the record: “Supremes” is the terminology used in our house to refer to lil’ sis and my nine year old foster brother. They are six months apart, but neither one of them liked “twins.” So, “Supremes” they were.
Our church’s Faith Weaver Friends does a grand prix every year. I loved making cars when I was in AWANA and it is just as fun helping the Supremes. Our family has done ballet shoes, space ships, sports cars, Larry the Cucumber, school buses, Laura Carrot (two veggie tales? I never noticed that : ), fire engines, and many others.
Lil’ sis said that this year she wanted to make a New Life Island canoe. She had gone to camp there last summer and loved it. Her canoe flipped, and I’m not sure why that was one of her favorite parts … but, we set out to make a canoe.
|Adding "New Life Island" to the side. It took her a couple tries to get it right, but she did it.|
|The finished car minus the wheels. That's Dad's job : )|
My brother wanted to make a Jase car from Duck Dynasty, one of my family’s new favorite shows. When he threw this idea out there, my jaw dropped. I had no idea how I was going to make that happen, but my dad says, “Sure, we can do that.” Okay… I guess I am going to figure it out : ) Well, it turned out pretty awesome, and kind of scary actually.
