The Freshenator

Cade had a project this week. He had to invent somethig that would make our lives today easier. Sometimes I think teachers who don't have kids are the ones who dream up these ideas. Seriously. We finally got the full instructions last night, which meant we had one evening to come up with the idea and execute it.

Cade's idea was an air freshener system for Jay's parents to use in their chicken houses. It was all Cade's idea. I came up with the name and Jay helped him with the drawings. Typical school project that turned into a family project....well a father/son project. It was good practice for Jay though. Valentine's is just around the corner and he is responsible for the box assembly for odd grade years.

They had some serious planning discussions. You can see the Practice drawing also in this picture.

Then there were serious crayon discussions...
