This past weekend we had a lot fun times.

On Saturday we went to Evan's rock launch Boy Scout event. Both Evan and Liam had made rockets to launch at a local school. Henry and Hazel had a good time sitting in the shade with Uncle Greg, Nana and Grandpa to watch the rockets and eat candy. Like most things one can tell what impressed Henry most when one hears what he tells someone who wasn't there about the experience (Meg in this case). "The smallest boy had the biggest rocket!" "Some rockets had parachutes and others had streamers." In the afternoon to cool of we filled up our three year old Target pool (what a great buy) and let the kids go crazy in it. It was cute. Even though the horseplay was a little rough, no one got hurt!

The fun continued on Sunday. Meg had the good idea of taking the kids to the Boston Children's Museum. I had never been, but Meg and the kids had been several times. Henry had been talking about taking me there throughout the week. It was a great time.

8,175 halves turned up eighteen 40% silver halves (1965, 7 x 1967, 6 x 1968D, 4 x 1969D) and one proof half (1979S).

4,320 quarters produced one silver Washington (1961D), two Canadians, seven US nickels, one US dime and one arcade token.

4,150 dimes yielded two silver Rosies (1964, 1964D), five Canadians, one UK 5 pence and two US pennies.

2,920 nickels rounded up one dateless Buffalo (S mint), one War Time (1943P), seven Canadians (2 Ni), one Bermuda 5¢ and one Euro 10¢.

6,450 pennies got me thirty-two Wheats, nineteen Canadians, one Bermuda 1¢ and one Chinese 5 Jiao (2000).
