Raising Engineers...

T Rex Dad is notorious for repairing our broken household electronics. Of late, his cell phone needed some repair. We both have old cell phones. How old? Recently, I was with the kids and a friend and T Rex was doing something charming. I had forgotten my camera which is rare because I take it everywhere. My friend suggested I take a photo with my phone. I pulled out the phone and tried to figure out how to take a photo. I never could. Later I realized, it has no camera. 


Well, T Rex Dad would not give up on his broken phone, and by compiling parts from a couple of old phones he pulled a "new" one together. It's working perfectly. The kids insisted on getting in on the action, too. I think this is how engineers are born.

Here are some photos.




School update - Midterms start tomorrow. I spent much of the weekend preparing. Send me good wishes this week. T Rex asthma update - significant improvement. He went on a run last night - it's been a while since he wanted to do that. I'll try to post photos of my Halloween crafts soon - all very kid friendly. Even one of T Rex's beloved stuffed animals has a costume.

So cool! It is so fun to see families working together and molding young minds with projects that interest them. Also I LOOOOOOOOVE your new header!! Dying of cuteness!

WEll I'm impressed! I'm not impressed by fancy cell phones, but a handy man? Yes! And how nice would it be to pass both of your wonderful skills onto your two cuties. I meant to say that I LOVE that photo of the two of them at the top. Frame worthy!

Yep definitely how engineers are born :) Glad the phone works, my iPod touch doesn't have a camera which confuses people and I'm so glad that T-Rex wanted to go running.

Oh ('cause I'm reading backwards) cute halloween crafts too - especially that tiger pumpkin is cute!
