December Daily update
Here are some of the pages from my December Daily for this past week. Click on any photo to make it larger.
The page above shows the Christmas train my brother's family got us for Christmas one year. We keep it packed away all year and only bring it out at Christmas. Andrew has been asking about it since last Christmas and was beside himself when I got the box down this year. The train is remarkably hard to put together. The train has to sit on the track just so, or the train won't go. Last year Dave and I put it together and had to be called in for de-railings now and again throughout the season. This year, I opened the box, and left Andrew to do the assembling. He must have spent about 2 hours that first day setting everything up, just so. When it wouldn't work right, Andrew just kept patiently working with it, until it did. And then it got it flying around the track frontwards and backwards.
With the various things that Andrew struggles with, it just amazes me how much patience and creativity he has when it comes to constructing. I absolutely love it about it about him.
