Looks like fun?

Last summer, while taking my legendary “road trip”, I stopped at one or two (dozen) rummage sales while in Wisconsin.  At one of those sales, I happened upon the coolest thing:  A model of a motorcycle made entirely out of lego blocks.  At $3, I couldn’t beat the price.  The only bad part was that we had to make the model ourselves.  I hoped that it would be good for some father/son bonding at some point.

When it came time to pack up to leave for India, the model went in our air shipment box.  I packed it knowing full well that Scott would probably never do it, and I would eventually be the one putting it together.

How wrong I was!

When I casually suggested that Scott and Ender make it this Saturday, I was surprised when Scott sent Ender to go and get it.  I was even more impressed when he finished the model completely that day.  While Ender, Addie and I chipped in here and there, the bulk of the project was Scott’s handiwork, and you must admit, the result is quite impressive.

Perhaps we’ve found him a new hobby besides work?

The motorcycle now sits in a glass cabinet above our kitchen counter for all to see.  Scott has assured that he will never have to rebuild it by throwing away the directions.  I will do my best to keep it whole and sound for as long as possible.  Perhaps Santa will bring Scott another one to work on?
