Tonight I went to Brian’s to film Built from Bricks. I really thought that I’d have more time today to do something other than talk more about the Stop Motion Studio.
I did get a bunch more LEGO sets today. Two came in the mail and two I picked up from Toys ‘R Us. I like to scoop things up on the 10% off days. Next week I will have a coupon plus a $5 coupon. There is another Marvel set that I have my eyes on.
I think that I’ll build many of these in a stop motion type video.
Today was a nice day with Andrew. I took him to school and then went to the gym. From there I went back to shcool and played some Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild until it was time to go in to read to Andrew’s Class.
I read the class two books. The first was Different is Awesome by Ryan Haack and illustrated by my friend Wes Molebash. The kids liked that very much. The second book was Nanette’s Baguette by Mo Willems. The kids loved that story and they laughed like crazy. That book is a great one for laughter. Andrew said it was his favorite book.
We went to lunch at Bliss Bros. Dairy because I had a craving for clamcakes and chowder. Andrew was s so much fun at lunch. We are starting to have better conversations and he’s such a joy to take to a meal. He was funny and sweet. He impressed the waitress, too, with his speaking. She said to me that he spoke so well and then she asked him how old he was. He held up his hand. I looked at him and said, “She just said that you spoke well and then when she asked you a question you just help up your hand.” He pointed to his mouth. His mouth had been full and so he was actually being polite. Well, I’m glad he had the presence of mind to be polite in that moment.
We went to the playground right after that. Andrew played on his favorite things like the zipline and the swings. He took a couple of falls but got right back up to try it once again.
In my video I talk about the new Marvel Superheroes LEGO set that Brian and I built for an episode of Built from Bricks. The Hulk vs Hulk set is a great one. It is really fun to play with, too. You will see when the episode is released.
