Blast Off

     Yesterday we all went and shot off our model rockets that we built for the second time since Christmas. We had a lot of fun. We each shot our rockets three times, and I could never catch mine no matter how close I thought I was! One time I ran to catch it, and I was only about 5 feet away from where it landed! We flew our rockets one other time, we came home for a repair job, then we went back out yesterday.

     My rocket is white and purple (purple is my favorite color). After we flew them the first time, when we were getting them all ready to fly again, we accidentally put a coat of satin clear paint on them, instead of glossy, so mine is going to look kind of flat until we get some glossy paint!
