Alex's Airplane

Alex is 5, almost 6 years old. He has no interest in learning his alphabet, counting, reading, coloring etc..however he does love bugs, trains, airplanes & PE. I took him to the library recently and he asked for as many books on airplanes as they would let him take. He told the libraian that he and his dad were going to build an airplane, because his dad could build anything. So after pouring over his books this past week he convinced his dad to build one. Alan is a typical farmboy and can build anything with bailing wire and a two by four. So he proceeded to build an airplane for Alex. Alex is so proud of that plane. It is very large & heavy, because it is made from a two by four, but Alex doesn't seem to mind. He put a star sticker on his dad's hand and said "you are my best friend dad cause you made an airplane""now can you buy me a remote control one." Well Alan got all choked up over that. When he and I were in town yesterday we found a remote control one for 30 bucks and bought it for his birthday. Hopefully it will fly.

It continually amazes me how every one of my childern are different from the others. Not just a little bit. They don't act like they come from the same parents. It is always an adventure around here.

That was such a sweet thing that his dad did to make his world go round. He seems to adore his dad and I love that quality in a man. My kids adore there dad and think he is the best. I am sure he will love the one you guys bought him to fly.
