Curious Boys and their Boat

A few days ago, Austin was reading his Curious George Anthology and came across a story where Curious George builds a boat!


He brought me the book and said, "Mom, we have to find a newspaper, and we have to build this boat!"

Fortunately, Austin's Aunt Kendra was more than eager to help Austin follow the instructions - and together, they built a newspaper boat.

Can you tell how proud Austin is in this picture?


We brought the boat home (all the way from Gainesville to Clearwater) trying to keep it very safe. As soon as Austin saw his cousin, Andrew, he screamed, "Andrew, I built a boat!"

Andrew and Austin decided that it would be a good idea to float the boat in the pool at Grandma's house.


And... although I had my doubts, that newspaper boat - actually floated for a LONG TIME!


Just long enough, in fact, for the boys to decide to change into swimsuits and go into grandma's pool.


So thank you, Aunt Kendra, for helping this little face light up with absolute delight!
