Blog Your Blessings: Adam the Air Traffic Controller

IMG 2699

My eight-year-old nephew Adam landed his paper airplanes on the blades of the ceiling fan in my parents' family room last week. Dad said it took him a couple days to get one on every blade, but he did. Mom and dad left them there until everybody got to see.

This remarkable feat is the result of months of practice. Adam and dad have been flying them through the family room window that opens onto the sun porch. They have also aimed for a big heavy lamp. The fan represents the biggest challenge of all, though.

It isn't possible to be cooler than Adam. No sirree.

  4. That is a brilliant thing to do. Bet there were hours of fun getting them up there. They would come down so quickly if the fan was turned on!

  12. What an achievement, I would probably not be able to do it; and if I by a chance get one to land the blades, i would hit it by trying to land the others.;)
    What a skillful nephew you have indeed.;)
