Pop Cans!

Fundraising, General

I really need to update my blog! Every time I make an invention it breaks before I can post it.

Anyways, I’m collecting pop cans so if you have any just contact me by the comments or by emailing me at

Also, soon I will be adding a computer tips section so stay tuned!

Tin Can Telephones

From Mom, General

Well this is what I thought would happen, no new inventions yet. It’s not that Erik hasn’t been inventing, it’s just that some inventions have gotten broken, or they aren’t blog worthy or he’s waiting on me for a item, like the gum-balls he wants for his gum-ball dispenser. He did make a phone/instrument of destruction, but after I explained that wasn’t blog appropriate, we decided not to post that.

But here is a copy of what Erik had posted all over the house last night. I haven’t tried to call the number yet, I need to find a working tin-can telephone first… but I’m happy that he wants to solve my problems, apparently just not while he’s at school.
