ACE's Energy Project

Last week, Aidan had a project due for Science. It was a poster - an energy poster.
It had very specific requirements and to be honest, it made me a little crazy.
For those of you that know me, I am a little obsessive, compulsive. Okay maybe a lot.
The poster had to be neat. That is a word that is not in Aidan's vocabulary. It meant he had to take his time and be careful. He just wants to get it done and be on to the next item on the list.
So I am not the best parent to help him with this project. I can help him with the pictures. Selecting them, printing them out, but as for the actual placement of them on the poster, I defer to Jerry.
He has a much more laid back approach and that works better with Aidan. Not my high strung "YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL!!!! NEATNESS COUNTS FOR 5 POINTS!!!"
So, Jerry helped his youngest son complete the project. And we, er he, got an A+.
Gosh I'm glad we're doing so well in 3rd grade science.

And here's a picture thrown in just for fun. We picked up the boys lacrosse uniforms last night. Austin wasn't thrilled with the idea of putting it on for picture, but ACE is always game.
He was so thrilled to get #61. That was Christopher's number and he idolizes him so.
