Some of the best days are spent doing things I didn’t plan…
Like when Gavin is begging me to build him a Lego house.
And it literally takes me the bulk of the day to fulfill this wish for him. He know’s mommy has never known her full potential at Lego building and seriously doubts a successful outcome, but he had every bit of faith in me with this assignment.
I couldn’t resist a couple of details, like the flower walkway next to a pond… or the fancy barbecue on the upstairs deck…
And of course we have the living room… a side from the kitchen and bedrooms.
Yes, that’s a drill on the coffee table, why I don’t know. 🙂
Gavin and Ella both asked for the garage.
It was definitely a Lego day and mostly because we are three days out from the last day of school, workbooks are drying up, and summer fun days are starting to nudge at us. We took a run in the morning through our “old downtown” and had some real interactions with map/key concepts as well as stopped in the pet store for some learning. The kids got to pet a few snakes, Ella pet a scorpion and they watched the effort that goes into maintaining all the animal cages. It was an eventful day even though the Lego’s ended up as the bigger portion.
But every good day must come to an end, and the creation met its tragic end…
It’s a tough thing to see hard work fall on the floor to a million pieces. But what is remembered is the fun that was had while it lasted!
And there’s always tomorrow….
