He Inherited It

Caleb is taking apart his toys, making modifications, and improving on designs. Here, he has taken a solar panel from a solar experiment kit and put it on a Styrofoam plane which began life as a rubber band plane. The rubber band plane was using kinetic energy, and now it is using solar electric. Very cool!

Caleb reminds me of a certain cute teenage boy who use to keep all sorts of parts to toys, computers, and gadgets in several boxes under his bed a long time ago. I thought that boy was weird for keeping so much "junk," but he was actually very smart. He was developing skills that would pay off in his career later. I call that teenage boy "husband" and "best friend" now. His boss recently said "Clint brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to our workplace." I just smiled and thought about those boxes.

Within reason and with supervision, let your children experiment. Clint lets our children take apart the broken small appliances after the cord is removed.

Romans 15:5-6 May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
