Wood Workers Club

A few months ago, Skyler started receiving little packages in the mail from GGpa (Great Grandpa). Skyler was super excited to get mail. We saved the first one for his Birthday. So he opened it and was intrigued about building his own turbo racer. As we started opening the kit, he was not to happy about all of the pieces and was over whelmed. So the first one was super dooper slow in putting it together. But well worth it! I forgot to take pictures while we were building, but here are some from painting.


Mom distracted by Spring time

Painting some more

Dad showing him how to wind it up
Ha Ha you can see he has lost another tooth!
We had fun with the turbo racer.
At first we broke the rubber band, then it just didn't work. We had some friends come over and they fixed the propeller, yay! Now it Zooms across the road.
The next one was a helicopter. This one we worked together, but Skyler did a lot more of the work.
We started outside

Then, moved into the garage, it was super windy
He was excited, it sort of looks like a helicopter

Putting the propellers together

Finished. It doesn't really fly, but it is
hanging from his ceiling in his room.
So the last one came in the mail, a Marshmallow Launcher. This one I asked him if he thought he could do it all by himself. He said yes, but was still not confident. Once I reassured him he could do it and it was ok if he messed up, he went outside and did it.  :0)
Supervisor Vern checking it all out

Painting, he was happy it was all One color

So this launches all sorts of stuff
not just marshmallows.. ha!!
He did a great job and only needed help with one crooked nail and a washer. He said "I can't wait to see what comes next!"  I am so proud of him and also excited to see what comes next.
I love to build, make, or change things from one purpose to another. God does all of this all around us. He built the earth, stars, animals, us and much more. It all starts in
Genesis 1:1 ~ In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
We can still see God the Creator, Elohim, skills today. Even through out my life he has changed me from a mean, self-centered, chameleon type of person to a much more pleasant, real version of myself. I have to say I was a willing participant, it was, and is, not always easy and I am still being changed.
Why do I always bring up God? He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die, and raise up from death for me, my sins and anyone who is willing to submit them self to Him. I could not make it with out Him and it doesn't make since but I am free by submitting to God's will. I am forgiven, I can come to him myself, I am forever grateful. I love His creations and just about everything can point back to Him one way or another.
If you are wondering here are some scriptures to go along with the above paragraph. I use a English Standard Version bible, just in case you were wondering.
1 Timothy 2:5-6 ~ For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.
Romans 8:7 ~ For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law, indeed, it cannot.
Galatians 3:13 ~ Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us - for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree".
Ephesians 2:13-19 ~ 13But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. 17And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. 18For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.
Romans 5:1 ~ Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 9:15 ~ Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.
