Grandchildren's Regatta

It's Spring and I figure the rivers in Utah will be running strong as the snow melts.  I am sending each of my grandchildren these happy sail boats to sail in the creeks, gutters, puddles or bathtubs.  Made of double-sided scrapbook paper with a flag made of regular printing paper and stuck on a match stick with the head cut off.  I put E-6000 where the stick meets the boat on the inside to hold it steady if things get rough during the race.  It's not easy being in a different state than they are but I can share my love and ideas with them as they come to me.
paper boats -my dad made these out of the church bulletins for us every week. Brought tears to my eyes.: GINGERLILLYTEA:

In hindsight I should have attached a pull string to each boat and maybe some Modge Podge to help it float longer.  I will make more.
