So anyway, almost every day he has a newly constructed ship to show us. The Titanic, the Olympic, the Britannic (those are officially the only three I can name, so I am stopping now). He builds them from Legos, or from paper, or from whatever he can find in the recycling bin.
(You think I am kidding, but I am absolutely not.)
He has taken to jotting down his ship design ideas on scraps of paper, and putting them in a shoe box for safe keeping. He has labeled said box "ship designs" and
OKAY WAIT CAN I JUST STOP RIGHT HERE AND SAY I CANNOT WITH THIS KID. Picture a million laugh-cry emojis in a row. He delights me. There is no one else like him.
|There are pieces of paper like this literally all over our house.|
Anyway. Okay so his box of ship design ideas started to seem a little risky, and he wanted to put his ideas down somewhere where they would be safe from baby sisters and baby cousins, so he asked me to open up his files where he wrote his blogs before, and some school reports and such (google drive), so I showed him how and he typed up his ideas, and he would like them to be a blog post too.
(I think he thinks he has a blog. Um no. But I told him I would make it a blog post here.)
So I present, without further comment, Nathan's ship design of the Esotonia 2.
Please ask me no questions, I know nothing.
Wait that's not true. I do know that when I am invited to sail on this completed ship, I'm for sure going in third class because I want the wings.
If you have five minutes of your life that you don't mind never getting back, he also fancies himself a rising YouTube star (I don't even know, y'all) and you can hear him talk about a boat he made of legos. It is exactly what it sounds like. Except with a dropped camera and a broken lego and instructions to look at something else while he fixes it. He's basically a professional, is what I'm saying.
