It’s amazing to see how our kids’ inherent abilities and traits come out. 6 year old Max has this magnificent blend of great mechanical and engineering skills, and creativity. And it’s lovely when I find an actual physical manifestation of that.¬†We were visiting Max’s class and his teacher showed us a project the kids had done. It was very simple: they had paper and scissors and had to create a snowflake. Most of the kids cut out a shape and then cut patterns into that shape. Not Max.

On a different note but same theme, Max has a cousin whose name is Blake and he asked us, “is his name just Flake, or is it actually Snowflake?”
