Here is Luke with his birthday toy (not assembled completely here yet)….a lego kit designed for 5 to 12 year olds. Luke put it together all himself, following the detailed picture directions, no sweat. Probably spent a total of 6 hours on it….totally focused. He wanted to finish it immediately all at once, but we convinced him it was okay to take a break, get a night’s sleep, and finish it the next day. The last hour of completion was with cousin Brooke (7 years old) hovering and advising. Luke did NOT allow her to put anything together in the wrong order!
On July 2 we had a big storm that took down a lot of trees, and every time we ride or walk down to the lake Ryan sees one of the big trees blocking some trails and he says with GREAT emphasis: “I just don’t believe it!!!!”
Ryan: “I’m okay, Grandma, I’m just riding my bike.”
Luke: “So how did you get that wire up there down to the lake to charge the battery on the pontoon, Grandpa?”
Ryan, killing bugs with the flyswatter: “Bad bug, you are dead and going to hell!”
Luke asking about family relationships: “Where is Grandpa’s mama?
Me: “Great Grandma died and is in heaven with Jesus.”
Luke: “Oh, so Great Grandma is in my heart?!”
