Here in Minnesota, Claire and I keep warm by huddling around the LEGO table...in our parkas. No...not really. Would you believe polar bear fleece?
How did we begin our journey with LEGO, you ask? It all started around 10 years ago when Claire was born. For my birthday, someone gave me a small packet of wonderfully colored bricks as a joke. I'm kind of a nerd, you see.
I thought about this LEGO packet for awhile. Then I had a plan. Why not get to know these little rectangular bricks so I could introduce them to Claire as she got older. Not only would this help grow her spatial and math skills, but it would hopefully dispel the idea that only boys played with LEGO!
My plan worked! 10 years later, Claire has great spatial and math skills, and loves LEGO. We have amassed hundreds of thousands of these colorful bricks, plates, tiles, etc. We have them organized, sorted, contained, grouped, stacked, and anything else you can do with LEGO.
Claire and I hope you enjoy our creations as much as we enjoyed building them. We can't wait to see yours.
