1920s Report

Joshua has had to research the 1920s. His Kaleidoscope class are traveling through the decades. Joshua chose 1920s since that was when King Tut was discovered.

It has been interesting learning about it along with him.

He has found out about Charlie Chaplin and bought the 1920 movie "Gold Rush". It does not surprise me that he likes him as he reminds me of an old time Mr. Bean. Joshua even used his own allowance money to buy the movie.

He also requested a Derby Hat as he is suppose to dress the part as well. He is also suppose to use slang words from that decade as well. Such as "the cat's meow".

We bought the Derby Hat online from WC Inc. via Amazon. They had great service and great prices.

Pine Wood Derby

Joshua's Cub Scout Pack had their annual Pine Wood Derby. Joshua did not win first overall this year but he did come second in his den. Here are a couple of pictures from the event and one from the week before. I thought it was a good picture of him.
