Pac Man

It's too bad that I didn't take pictures when Danny started this project on Tuesday. I think he spent about 6 hours on it on Tuesday, 4 hours on Wednesday, 4-6 hours on Friday... and pretty much all day today. He finally had it finished to his satisfaction at about 6pm.
If he had planned it out ahead of time, we maybe could have started saving up large pieces of cardboard. As it is, we pretty much didn't have anything bigger than an orange box...if that big. I think there is possibly more duct tape than cardboard involved here.

It was not a costume to run around the neighborhood in - we sent Alex with him to make sure he didn't run into any little kids. His costume was a big hit - everyone recognized the iconic shape and color. I'm practically teary-eyed when I think about all the hard work he put into this costume.

Practically - but not quite. Just wait until Monday morning when school starts and he has to pay the piper (me) and catch up on his late assignments.

I'm impressed with his determination. Now if we can only help him focus it where it's needed.
