Our first attempt at Launch Day ended up being called off because it started snowing sideways while the kids were getting everything set up. The launch day was postponed to Saturday which meant that we were able to attend as a family. It was really exciting to watch all the rockets being launched and the instructor brought and launched some larger and more complex rockets too.
Joshua assembled and painted both of these rockets!

Time for the Instructor's Big Rocket
Now for Joshua's 2 Stage Rocket - If all goes well, the second stage will come down with a parachute.

A successful launch day!
