A Columbus Day Regatta

This is a fun post.
Ethan's 1st grade class celebrated Columbus Day
by building individual boats
and then racing them down a small
creek next to the school.
The teacher sent down 2 boats at a time.

Here is Ethan right before his race.
He and his daddy had so much
fun building this boat the night before.


Ethan was one of the last two racers to go.
He was absolutely terrified when he saw he
would be racing the biggest boat in class.

I am happy to report that Ethan won hands down.
The large boat was too big for the shallow creek. It kept getting
caught on all the rocks and tree limbs.

Ethan's Dread Pirate Roberts Ship.

Here is Charlie's large cruise liner.
The kids were so creative with their boats.
This was such a fun class project.

Gotta say I love the Dread Pirate Roberts boat. What a fun class activity. And look, a creek! I don't know the last time I saw one of those. Congrats on the win, Ethan!
