27 – labor of love

This quote from my friend’s Facebook status says it best:

‎”Why did you spend all day with your son fixing that bike, when the bike shop could have fixed it in an hour?” The neighbor replied, “Because I am building a son, not fixing a bike”

I spent a long time building a balsa plane for Matty and Sara. Sure, we had some easy kits that would have taken all of ten seconds to put together, but it was fun building things while the kids were at the table also building things themselves.

Matty is very proud of the plane I made. It doesn’t fly and it’s already broken twice, but I just keep fixing it.
