I love my son! And this post is dedicated to him today. It has been so fun to watch him grow and develop over the years. And believe me when I say I do not miss the fact that I have extra blessings poured upon me with my children because we have chosen to homeschool. I get so much time with my children…and I LOVE it! I am blessed and grateful, and I do not take it for granted. Not every day is a walk in the park, but overall, homeschooling has been phenomenal.


One of the things I’ve watched is RB’s desire to make creations with Legos. He started out not really being able to put the tiny pieces together. Now he makes these elaborate “models” (as he calls them!) and they are symmetrical and well thought out. He used to make a model and call it something and the model didn’t look anything like an airplane. Now he calls something by name and it looks like it. It’s so cool to watch!

So I am sharing what makes me smile with you today. Have a fantastic Friday!

RB’s version of Legoville.

Helicopter. I helped him with this one, I’m kinda proud of myself. 🙂

Rocket ship

He had little people all over the place, each with its own job.

This is the book from the library that he used as inspiration to create his Legoville. Recognize the helicopter?

I love my boy!

  1. Love his creations! I guess you need lots of shelves to display his creations. Eventually, he will have to take them apart to create something new. He might like to have a scrapbook to save the pictures of his creations. He could write descriptions to go with the pictures.

    We have loved homeschooling. We still reap the rewards of the relationships we forged in all of those hours together.

    • The problem is, I have books on all of the shelves in his room. I think I’m going to have to take MY passion and move the books out of his room so he has room for HIS passion. I’ve been taking pictures of most of his creations. I like the scrapbook idea. 🙂

  2. Reminds me of my brother – he would build things with his erector set, always handy with building and fixing things. I see he likes baseball, is he watching the Little League World Series? We live just across the river – always a highlight this time of year.

    • We haven’t been watching baseball…I’ve (ahem) dropped the ball on that one. 🙂 I do hope to get him watching some high school football and then some little league this year. We are finding that RB has quite the throwing arm…AND he’s a lefty!
