Elijah: Our little fix-it man

Elijah has a little toy that lights up and plays music when you press a button.  The other day Elijah brought it to us and said, "It doesn't work."  So I tried it out and sure enough it didn't work, so I said to the family, "This toy is broken."  Elijah who has just turned three promptly disappeared.  And by the time I realized it, he had already run upstairs, recovered the correct screwdriver -- a Phillips screwdriver, and had the battery cover unscrewed, had taken it off of his toy, and had removed the batteries.  

Elijah loves to "fix" things and tries to figure out how things work.  I quickly grabbed the camera and took several pics of him "working" on the toy.

Noah had to help him put the batteries back in correctly, and amazingly it started working again.  It looks like he takes after his Grandpa Dickinson.  He is also so funny because he loves to be in charge.  He is happiest when he is pointing and barking orders to keep things happening. 

   It is amazing how each of our children are completely different.  We so need God's wisdom in leading them to perfect love for Christ in order for God to channel their interests and abilities for God's will and for His glory.
