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.
