"Okay Mom, I know what I want to do."
And with that we had a internet-idea-free box, complete with Big Bird. I only helped with the red and orange paper and the blue arrow.
I love watching Oliver come up with ideas and execute them. He is so original. Something I wasn't completely as a kid (which isn't bad, I liked what my siblings did and I followed suit and it worked for my personality so well). I think as the oldest child you've really got to break out and be brave as you experience the unknown often. Ansel really learns a lot from his brother and I'm thankful I was able to learn so much from my siblings. I often think of my oldest brother. The sibling who had to do everything "first." And I'm thankful he is such a great older brother. And how I have five more older siblings who enabled me to follow in their wake and succeed.
I don't know how this post took this turn, it was just supposed to be about Oliver's awesome box. But there you have it.
