When I say my son, Connor, loves LEGOs it is an understatement. He has been building sets that are way above his age level since the age of four. We have Star Wars, Agents, City, Bionicle, and almost every other type of set Lego has on the market. He is a member of their Fan Club and eagerly looks forward to the arrival of the Lego Magazine.
Tonight I came home from my night class and this is the picture that greeted me.
The Lego Website is Connor’s favorite online haunt. He has several Wii games along with a multitude of DS games, yet he constantly returns to the Lego Website. He watches their videos, plays their games and builds sets online. One day, he was getting ready to build a Star Wars set he had received as a gift. He prepared to build, opening all the individual bags and laying out all the pieces. Then, he got up, went to the computer and pulled up the directions for the set online. I asked him if the directions were missing from the box. His response, “No, I just like the directions on the computer better.”
When I look at the intensity on his face in this picture, I wonder is there any lesson in school that makes him respond like this.
