The passion for Legos continues. I’m not sure if I mentioned this before but Elijah lost his enthusiasm for the Lego classes. He decided that what he liked about the classes was being able to build with Legos but that being told what to build and not being able to keep what he built was not fun. He had been very interested in the Lego robotics that the older kids were doing in the other room but was disenfranchised when he was told that he couldn’t do those activities until he was older. Solution: Use the money we would have spent on the class sessions and buy our own stock of Legos.
The boy is in love. He pours over the building schematics of the vehicle kits. His ability to decipher the instructions to create these complex cars and trucks is amazing. Chris and I love to be his assistants by gathering the parts he needs for the next step while he builds away.
Here he puts his foot next to the car to give a size comparison. These are a few of his latest creations (which then get taken apart to build one of the other vehicles). Recently my mom sent a retro collection of Legos that I used to play with as a child. Sadie gets into these as well and they both like making their own creations without a guide.
