We waited through several days of alternately wet and windy weather to get outside and play again. On this particular evening, we got out my old (-fashioned) balsa wood gliders. I have two, and we opted to play with the bigger one.
We had lots of funs taking turns winding up the propeller, launching the glider, and being the 'chaser' (as Mister J titled the role). We had a little 'blowout' and had to replace a rubber band in the middle of our play. Not to worry - I had a spare! As we were wrapping up for the night we had a major crash that resulted in the disentegration of the wing. Oh, well! I'll be keeping an eye out for another glider (the smaller glider just doesn't compare to this one...) and for a better place to play - one a bit more wide open than our backyard. This was definitely a lot of fun for 3 out of 4 of us - Miss M opted to play in the sandbox.
