Benjamin has turned into quite the author and inventor!
We have enjoyed reading the books he's written, hearing the songs he's composed, and admiring the things he's created using recycling materials (yes trash). His creativity was truly sparked this year by the amazing teacher he had in first grade. She so encouraged their creativity and gave them a clean canvas to work on in all things. It was great to see his little mind grow this year!

I just had to share some of the sweetest and funniest things he's come up with...

A sweet song to the Lord that he wrote

One of the more hilarious! These are instructions on how to make things, according to Benjamin.

How to make milk:

How to make grape juice:

We cracked up at him for this telling him that he wrote "poot" instead of "put". When you "poot" it like that it has a whole different meaning!!!!

How to build a play house:

I love his phrase, "Then thar it is." Thar it is folks, our precious, creative boy!!!

I love it!!
I also love his creative way of spelling things. LOL! It's good to know where other kids' Judah's age are at in their learning. Judah spells similarly to B, but not as creative in his stories he writes.
Thanks for sharing.
BTW, it was really great to see you and the kids the other day. J & T haven't stopped talking about all the fun time they had.

This was SO cute! Benjamin is so creative. What was step #6 on his play house? I couldn't figure that one out. :)

Thanks for sharing this. I especially love his song. What a sweet boy!
