1st Grade Crush

My sister was so nice, and volunteered to take my boys for the night last Friday. We went to a few gallery openings without kids.

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.

I said, "We'll have to put these in a safe place, give them to your teachers when it's Valentines Day. Instead of pictures we can put a gift card, and a Valentine in the hearts." 

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)...

A) free.

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.

Aww he's such a sweetie! :) I wish we had something like Lowe's here in Singapore. If something's so good like that, it would never be free here!

Aww that's sweet. My son had his little heart broken when he got up the nerve to tell a little girl he loved her and she laughed and told everyone, and told him to stop loving her, lol. I took him to a movie instantly (we were in the car when he was telling me and the poor guy was all welled up with tears). He hasn't liked a girl since, thank goodness! ;) I like the project, it turned out cute!

That is sweet! I wish they had that rule at my kids' school. A child gave the twins really nice gifts at Christmas. I went ahead and got him a gift back, but I felt uncomfortable that other kids were excluded from the whole thing :-(
