I have noticed that with age the excitement about Children's' Day slowly dies out.
The girls did not give us any idea about what they would like to get ( maybe because we wouldn't go for another game or PlayStation ) and decided to postpone ice cream outing for another day :( Growing up doesn't come easy, especially for parents, and we can't avoid it...
On the other hand Jacob had a lot of ideas and he settled down for his desired Lego set.
He got up early on June first and started working. After school he worked almost non stop ( a break for dinner ) until 9 pm. !
His determination and perseverance is something to strive for.
With just a tiny bit of help he was able to finish the set quite fast.
I love his love for building and putting things together. Looks like another engineer is in the making :)
Last weekend we have decided to take the kids on the historical trail; they have inherited the love for history gene :)
Living in the Northeast really helps to go on those kind of expeditions. It is the oldest historically part of USA. Boston area is full of historical marks from Revolutionary War and The Minute Man Park is one of them. It is a place where the War started and a place of great lesson on the beginnings of the War of Independence.
