Still My Little Boy

Even though he'll be fourteen in a few months, he's still my little boy. I love that he still plays for hours with his Lego, designing, building, creating...

 

 

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” 

~ Albert Einstein


Taking time to capture an ordinary, everyday, minute of your day and mark it down as something worth remembering. For more Sixty Seconds on Tuesday or to participate as well, visit Jenny's wonderful blog at Just a Minute.

  1. Deborah,
    I really enjoy your 60 second post. You find the most amazing things to record. That quote from Albert Einstein is one of my favorites and I can tell that you do a wonderful job in fostering both the love of learning and the courage to imagine in your children.
    Great job! Keep up the great post!
    :)

  2. Fourteen year old boys are ultra special. I know I'm going to miss all of mine this summer.

  3. Great Sixty Seconds picture! My son - the one whose picture was on my post today - loved Legos too! And he was putting them together at 14 too! And yes, he is still my little boy! God bless!

  4. That is a great "capture"... he is so completely adolescent boy in the best meaning of the phrase :D

    Sure wish ours could play together,

  5. Thanks for sharing the lovely photo of your son! I, too, have a 13 year-old son, who will turn 14 in October. And he also loves playing Bionicles with his little brother for long stretches of time! That's one of the things I love about homeschooling -- we can help our children enjoy their childhood and youth more (which are really so short compared to the years of adulthood!) by prolonging their innocence and sense of wonder and preventing them from growing up too soon.

    As for my "Sixty Seconds," I posted it late. I hope to post it earlier next time.... God bless!

  6. I still love Legos myself... though I don't drag them out nearly enough.

  7. What a beautiful candid moment. I love the long, growing body of the boy man intent on his creativity.
