Fort Burlington

Tyler and his friend Gideon built this log fort  near the school and right next to their forest here in Burlington.  They have had a blast over the last few weeks. The gray pipes represent cannons, and the blue material represent their flags.  I thought it was pretty cool that they built a room with a roof.  They sure are having a lot of fun.

Space The Final Frontier

Tyler's fourth grade class has been studying science.  A few days ago he came home from school and decided to build his own satellite from scratch with the aid of two aluminum soda cans taped end to end covered with tin foil, and two solar panels made of cardboard and toothpicks.  We thought it was pretty creative. 

Update:  Julia tied for second place in Burlington Middle School during a math competition.
