My Jaxson loves to make things. All three of my children do honestly...each in different ways. Madelyn loves to do *any* crafting...paper/jewelry/painting/sewing/knitting etc. Xavier loves to *build*...he likes to use tools and wood (or anything he can find) and put something useful together. Jaxson loves to use his imagination and recreate things he loves out of paper.
He made a hobbit house out of paper and I helped him decorate it with a cobblestone walkway, flowers, bushes and a window.
He made the hobbit hole so you can flip the top over and look inside. We only worked on decorating the outside though, this time.
Then he was determined to make Smaug (the dragon in The Hobbit movies). He made the body while I quickly made up a head for our dragon...
A completed fire-breathing Smaug...with moving wings and everything!
“Christ did not die to forgive sinners who go on treasuring anything above seeing and savoring God. And people who would be happy in heaven if Christ were not there, will not be there. The gospel is not a way to get people to heaven; it is a way to get people to God. It's a way of overcoming every obstacle to everlasting joy in God. If we don't want God above all things, we have not been converted by the gospel.”
