This year we kicked off our school year with a new (not just for fun) construction toy.

We got Kapla planks and Kapla art books. We love them! We bought 2 x 200 piece sets and the red and green books. Soon we hope to have more planks and the other 2 books!

Shiloh’s first project, a chair:

James woke up to discover the Kapla planks, and we had fun Lyon Family Style (That is everyone in their pajamas, a huge mess, and everyone working on various projects.)

James and I built these after the kids went to bed and left it for them to wake up to the next morning.

That’s our way of kicking off the school year!!! Maybe I’ll get some shots of the kids all dressed in ‘day clothes’ before we head to the Learning Center’s kick-off tomorrow morning: a presentation from the Museum of Flight! Then again, I never have taken traditional pictures like that before, so I may not.

(We are moving on to some reading, writing, rithmatic stuff too, but each week throughout the school year the kids will be building a Kapla project, taking a picture of it, and then knocking it down. Oh, and I may build a few more things as well.)
