The next morning I picked the boys up, and we went to the Lowe's Build and Grow Clinic. I think Mica's getting sick of them, but Isaak loves them. I love helping them with it. It's something I can do with them that involves building - an important skill to learn for any boy. I also dig that it's free.
We made Valentine picture holders.
Isaak said, "Mom don't laugh. Promise you won't laugh!" I said, "Ok I won't laugh." Isaak said, "Well I really want to give it to this girl at school named (sp?) Jacklin."
In Kindergarten Isaak had a crush on Maddie. Towards the end of the year it was Breanna. Now it's Jacklin. He just plays with them, and talks about them. He plays a lot with a kids named Jacob and Daniel to.
For the record he won't be giving this to Jacklin. At the boy's school they can't just give something to 1 kid, and not the others.
Have you been to Lowe's Build and Grow?
I think it's so cool that it('s)...
B) teaches them how to use a hammer.
C) teaches them how to follow directions.
D) something besides Boy Scouts that they get to take home a badge. They love seeing their aprons get filled up.
E) for a lot of different ages. I see itty bitty kids there, on up to upper elementary.
