The Mechanical One

Or should it be titled life with a messy child??? J3 has always been one to take things apart, and then put them back together the way he envisions them... hope that makes sense. It keeps him very busy and entertained to have some project to work on that requires tools. Not long ago he fixed J1's bike for him... J1 didn't know how to do it so the bike sat broken... until J3 took it upon himself to go to the hardware store with his own money and buy the needed parts for the bike and fix it...

hard at work...







These pictures are of J3 and his room... I just took this this afternoon after I got home from my bus route, went looking for J3 and he was in his room with this mess... rebuilding a stereo system... he is taking parts from one stereo and using what he needs for the other stereo...




I am so glad he has to clean it up... if I had to it would all go in the garbage!!!

sounds to me like you might have an engineer on your hands in the future.
Sounds like your enjoying your bus route and gas station job. Awesome!:)

He's one smart cookie! Robyn's son Donnie always did that. He made his own robot for a school project once. Very cool kid, you should be proud!

Wow, I am impressed! Hopefully he will only use those particular skills on things he should, and you don't someday come home and find him taking apart your tv or your computer or some other essential item!
