Down to the River ....................................

Curious J has poison ivy , so he couldn't go to his summer daycare provider the past 3 days , so we've been hanging out and doing some fun stuff.

Yesterday we went down to the river to explore , it was a very hot day , so into the water we run.

This is the river were I spent so much time at when I was his age , we would go fishing near this area below the dam. My Daddy loved boating , camping , fishing and swimming , so we spent almost every weekend at the river or the beach. The area has changed though , a few years ago , the old dam was torn down in this area. The old electric plant still stands , so we explored the plant a little while we were there.

Curious J checked out a book from the library this week that featured fun science projects , we made a parachute man to learn about wind resistance.

He's coming in for a landing !

We made this plaque with plaster , Curious J and K Gray painted it. I think they did a great job with the painting. It's been a busy week , but I've enjoyed our adventures.

Poor Curious J! ♥
When we moved to Louisiana, both my son and I encountered poison ivy. We both grew smarter from the encounter! And now the only time I get it is when one of my cats gets into the stuff and then comes & rubs on me! AGH!
The river looks like so much fun! Especially on a hot day! :0)

few things done around here.

I forgot to open comments.

But sometimes I leave comments

one day.

Thanks for your concern and
