The World's Largest Sling Shot

My two younger boys enjoyed an outdoor lunch with some friends. Beautiful weather provided a wonderful backdrop.

As I was doing dinner dishes, I heard a commotion upstairs, followed by loads of giggles and several loud thuds. I gazed up the stairs and eyed three boys rigging one of Chris's exercise band to the banisters. I watched the boys position different objects in the middle of the band, and then tug the band towards the wall. After a small countdown, they'd release the band and scream with delight as the object propelled through the air.

When I inquired about their activity, Caleb (the mastermind) eagerly replied. "We're making the world's largest sling shot."

Of course they are.
