The Lego Jar (11/3/12) – More cardboard, but never bored

It is time for another edition of The Lego Jar.  This week we enjoy more cardboard.  And, well, why not?

Honestly, I don’t really like Halloween.  I know that makes me the Ebenezer Scrooge of Halloween, but that is alright with me.  We don’t do anything to celebrate, except go to the store and buy the leftover candy.  That reminds me of something I need to do.  Anyway, the schools do things and our kids participate in those things.  This year my oldest son was a robot.  The other kids also made their own robots just for fun.

The school had a vocabulary parade.  My son was with another kid and their word was “partnership.”  I didn’t get the whole robot thing and I guess neither did his friend, since he came as a construction worker.  Whoops!  They made it happen, though.

My 5-year-old went as Mike Mcarthy, the Packers’ head coach.  That brings a tear to me eye, as I know it does yours.


They also did a parade, but it was through the halls of the school.  It was cute.

My daughter enjoyed the cardboard boxes again.  This time it was the robot that she was climbing into. She was very proud of herself.

Last Saturday my two older boys went with me to help someone move.  This was prior to the storm that was coming, so they were talking about the storm and other things.  Somewhere along the way I heard this:

“I lived in Minnesota, but you didn’t.”

“No, I was in mommy’s tummy when we moved.”

“Hey dad, how did I get in mommy’s tummy?  How did I grow?  I didn’t eat vegetables.”

I went into question mode and asked them how they thought it happened.

“Maybe God does it.  God makes things grow, right dad.”

I liked his answer, so we stuck with that.  I did encourage them to ask their mother about it.

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  This week’s Lego Jar is brought to you by turkeys of all shapes and sizes.
