Well my wonderful children who take after me and tend to forget or procrastinate gave us the note a week and a half before the due date. Great.
Very rarely will I complain about having twins. In fact I find far more perks to it than negatives and LOVE being part of the multiples club :) Buuuut in this instance. Coming up with not just one design but two different designs and having to help with double the work was a little stressful. I'm now dreading things like the science fair where again, we'll have to help be doubley creative and do double the work at the same time. You can't recycle ideas when they are twins and presenting them the same year in the same class haha.
Luckily Justin is an awesome engineer and rounded up some supplies (foam plates, cardboard, straws, popsicle sticks, ect) and let the kids look through the supplies. They each came up with an idea of what they wanted it to look like and Justin helped them figure out how to make it work. They each got theirs built in about 2 hrs or so and much to our relief they both worked! They didn't need much tweeking or re-designing and they are ready to race! They were able to race against each other to test them out (I guess there are still perks to twins even when its double the effort...its double the fun and you have racing partners) :) Today is the big race and I can't wait to hear how it goes!
