The Great Wall

So I occasionally have to take breaks from the CALAMITY JACK forced-coloring-death-march. For things like sleeping, going to the bathroom, not eating, I can do that while I color. And every once in a while, I have to take a break to be a Dad and help my son do his homework. 

He had to do a poster about the building of the Great Wall of China. So we spent the morning building this:


Yeah, we went a little overboard. I remember being in school and seeing the kids whose projects showed WAAAY too much parental involvement. And now I know what it feels like to be on the other side.

Sarah, that is so cool! Uly is SO not allowed to see this--he'd BEG me to build one for him, and I'm no engineer. I can make stuff that LOOKS cool, but no way can I make it work!
