The truck and crane is far more impressive than it actually looks.
Its chock-full of gears and interacting moving parts and the instructions for this model is in no less than three booklets. I helped Quinn build the truck but the crane he did all by himself (with an occasional bit of assistance from me) over most of today and some of yesterday. I'm very impressed with Quinn's efforts.
Weekends are cool, and so is Lego!
I used to spend hours and hours when I was Quinn's age building stuff from ye olde blocky lego where the most advanced pieces were a clear plastic window block and a roofing tile!
I'm really enjoying rediscovering it again with Quinn. Thankfully, today's lego is more like precision engineering pieces.
And its a great activity that we can both enjoy together.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
