A Lofty Goal

Caleb recently checked out a copy of the Guinness Book of World Records from the school library. Ever since, he has been racking his brain for a way to get his photo in the book. After many discussions about how growing out his finger nails or nose hair is just not a good idea, the light bulb of inspiration appeared over his small head.

He is now determined to make the world's largest duct tape ball.

He's got a pretty good start. Infamy and glory await....


  1. You know, I saw the ball of duct tape last night and I was wondering what it was for. Go Caleb!

  2. My nine year old son once aspired to be an entrant in the Guinness Book of World Records for wearing a wrist band for the most days consecutively. I think we had to cut him off eventually (that or he forgot about it). It started to get pretty stinky!

  3. ha ha ... i saw that on your counter and figured it had something to do with caleb. xoxo

    it's good to have a goal.

  4. you could have tried giving him some trick ideas and get a little something out of it for yourself.

    1. Most consecutive days a bed has been made
    2. Most times a kid has picked up dog poop.
    3. Most vegetables eaten by a kid in a year.
    4. Longest time a kid has not fought with his sister.
    5. Longest time a child has gone with out having to be reminded to brush their teeth
    6. Most hugs given to a mom in one year

    call me next time for more ideas!
