We came, we saw, we Lego’d 

I’m starting to ring fence time in the morning to support Nomi and Zoey with their interests, working towards it being project time (if it isn’t already). There are a lot of things they want to make and they tell me through out the day, and I’m journaling to keep track but we need dedicated time otherwise it just won’t happen. 

Today they wanted to build trains from Lego. Nomi had seen the photo of a train in the Lego ideas booklet. We three are new to Lego and it’s awesomeness, the ideas booklet is handy for learning about the different parts (coupling pieces today) and for getting us going. 





Lego has come on quite a bit since I was a kid, and the tactile feel of the bricks and the clicks as you put them together is as satisfying for me as them. 



I think we all need more Lego and building in our lives. Zoey and Nomi’s trains were duly incorporated into Sodor, and rebuilt through out the day. Tiny piles of Lego all over the place.
