Skills Building 101

For a kids who holds a fork like a shovel,
Grant's latest passion has produced results nothing short of miraculous.

He is fascinated with Perler Beads....

teeny tiny beads that can be arranged into just about any shape or image then melted and fused together with a hot iron.

I'm not kidding when I say they're tiny.

He has progressed from just plunking random colors down with no rhyme nor reason to their arrangement to making some very pretty patterns like this.

These are all his creations.
He's done all of these in less than a week.

I think he's got the fine motor thing quite under control now.
Time to move on.

Maybe we can work on letter recognition now!!

I just found this picture on my camera.
They are David's 'birthday presents' from Grace and Grant.

The kids found my aluminum foil and wrapped up toys from the playroom to give David for his birthday.

Inside these carefully wrapped packages I believe David found:  a pair of drumsticks, a fisher-price camera case, and a book.

It's the thought that counts, right?
