The Bridge

Last week, Clementine had Construction Day at her school. All the dads came in for an hour to build something with their kids. As you know, I am not very savvy with tools -- power or otherwise.

The dad has explicit instructions not to do all the construction for their kids, but to help them build. This would be no problem for me. I never took shop, and I really don't know how to work with wood, nails, and glue anyway. When Clementine decided she wanted to build a bridge, I helped her create the "structure", then she set about decorating the bridge. Soon enough, the exercise became less like construction and more like beading. Which was just fine by me.
