Busy Day for Ben

Ben's had a busy day. I'm not sure just how much school he's gotten done but lots of other things got accomplished. At Christmas he spent some of his Christmas money on a cute little gingerbread house kit. He and Adora assembled it and it's been sitting on the dining room table ever since. The question over the past month has been what exactly do we do with it now? There is no way this Feingold family is going to consume that thing. The gingerbread seems to be made out of glue mixed with cardboard and all the brightly colored, pretoleum flavored candy...speaks for itself. So today Ben grabbed his equipment and made great sport out of Gingerbread House Smashing. The first blow came from a baseball while the remaining bits were taken care of, well, like this:I love JM's and David's contributions here. I think they were the sound effects guys. As you can see, we don't take kindly to artificial colors and flavors 'round these here parts...

The demolition complete, Ben moved on to something much more productive. Tomorrow marks his first ever pinewood derby and he's been diligently working on his car. Tonight he has the official weigh-in so it needed to be completed. It was all done except for adding on weights and the official number. This is one sleek looking vehicle and I think he's done a smashing job:
