Have faith in your children

you could be very amazed at what they'll do!

We had a fence to build today to protect our garden.  X (6 yo) asked us to take some of the wood pieces that were discarded, as well as a box of small nails.  And this time around, without even asking why, I said yes.  He gathered his tools (he has a small stash of tools for him) and got to work without saying a thing.  He came to see us to have some pieces cut in a particular way, and after we were done with the fence, he showed us his work:

His helicopter:

along with the details of the tail:

and his plane

My DH's face was the priceless thing to see when he showed us his constructions.

I can sense a few afternoon of guys building things together...very soon...
