Last night was our annual rocket launch at our church. The weather was absolutely perfect, thank you Lord!
The winners are decided by random choice…the person in charge of the rocket launch is very fair about it and makes sure the winners are not the same ones year after year. 🙂 He hides a special color ribbon inside some of the rockets, and when each rocket is launched, the ribbons pop out and if it is the right color, that child has won.
This year they let the girls participate, as this event is usually only for the boys. My daughter won 2nd place and my 2nd youngest son won 3rd place! Here are pictures of my children with their rockets (unfortunately one is very blurry, but I cannot take another picture of him until he returns home from camp!):
