Fun with Pen Lights

Or


How we entertain ourselves after dinner here at Kamp Kuroiwa



Here is the after-dinner conversation that started it all:
d: "How was your meeting today?"
k: blah blah blah blah...something about taxes and more write-offs.
d: "What do you mean I can have more write-offs?"
k: "Parking receipts, shopping receipts...."
d: "Shopping receipts??"
k: "Like at the stationary story for paper and pens."

Pens!!

k: "That pikapika site was really good, wasn't it?"
d: "yeah...I watched so many of them and posted about them that night."
k: "We could do that."
d: "Eh?"
k: "I have a pen light."
d: "Really? We can do that?'
k: "Of course."
d: "Cool. Let's do it."
k: "I'll just go get my pen."

And then....the fun began!!!


It took us a little bit to get the hang of how to do it and how to time it just right, but...after two sessions of playing with the lights~~one before dishes, the other after~~I think we have the makings for many, many more projects!!! The boys even got into it!! And for those who actually know the K-man...really...this doesn't surprise you, does it? :-D
For something in the future....I see pictures set to music...with more colors of pen lights!! Thank goodness I'll be able to write them off as "Teaching Supplies"!!!




By the way....on the last line...after the two 'happy faces'..."dad", "mom" and "kids"....kind of hard to read...sorry!! Also that one next to the last....the K-man's attempt at lips!!!
