Day Out With Thomas
Image by jbj via Flickr I am so excited!!! My family will be taking A…
A local father to a boy who used to go to the same school as my daughter dropped me a message on Facebook asking if my boys liked Legos. Of course my reply was, “yes they do!”. Later that day, to my surprise, the local friend dropped off this gigantic tote of Legos. I honestly am amazed at how many kind, thoughtful families there are in my town. This particular man and his wife are absolutely sweet, they both are friends with me on Facebook and I admire them lots! I am now eternally grateful to them because dropping these Legos off meant more than just items for us!
I honestly had to pick my jaw up off of the ground when he arrived to hand me this huge tote of Legos. This is a lot of Legos. These were dropped off on a weekend when no kids were here, I couldn’t wait for Monday after school to arrive so that my three children could see the amount of Legos we received.
I knew that my boys would be over the moon happy but what I didn’t realize is how happy my daughter would be. We have quite a few Lego sets around here but none that are geared towards girls, all themes are Star Wars or other Shark Type themes for the boys. It seems very few times does anyone think to buy Girl Theme Legos, but see I didn’t realize up until this past Christmas Season that my daughter even wanted Girl Lego Themed Items. Well, girl theme or not, apparently having this gigantic bucket of Lego’s made her day too!
All three of my kids have never, ever played so nicely … okay except the times they are playing the MineCraft Demo on PS3. This is more than just a video game though, Legos have brought my children together to use their imagination and creativity in a way that no video game can compare to.
Nothing makes me smile more than watching my three children work together to play Ninja games with the Legos we received. I am so happy that we received such a kind gift because it really has brought our whole household together for fun days and evenings. Thank you to the Family who gave us this Lego supply, we appreciate you!
