Day 272

We finally busted out the last of Tyler's birthday presents today, a bouncy ball making kit.  The boys thought it was really cool and the process is simple.  The worst part is waiting for them to process, about 30 minutes total.  They aren't the bounciest balls we've ever had, but they made them and thought it was fun!  Thanks Black Family!
