I almost forgot to post a perk this week. I’m such a slacker!
My children don’t spend hours playing video games. They are not especially interested in sports either. Oh, they love the computer and the tablet and all things techie, but they don’t spend all their time with a screen in front of them despite their parents setting a terrible example. And you can blame their parents for the lack of interest in sports, too… we’re not interested either.
What they love is imagining, creating, and building. We’ve got an almost obscene amount of LEGO in our home. (Oh, I’m not screaming LEGO, by the way. All caps is the proper spelling. And the plural of LEGO is LEGO. Yes, thorough research has been done.)
I am often recruited to assist, especially with the ‘home’ projects. Everything in the pictures below was created from imagination — no ‘official’ LEGO set instruction booklets used. My favorite is making the kitchen. Oh… and the beach house — that was all me. Didn’t even have to ask the kids for help!!
I thought about sharing these quite a while ago, but I forgot until a conversation I had with my friend Diane today (thanks!). I hope you enjoy them… they were lots of fun to build!
