I’m not sure where it comes from, but suddenly life here is about planes and flight. When Kieran likes something, he doesn’t just become interested he actually obsesses. Currently he is gathering all the knowledge he can on the history and science behind flight in books we borrowed from the library. He is getting a head start on flying lessons with flight simulators on the iPad and we have built our first model plane. So much fun taking him to the park today and tossing our best effort in the air. Over and over.
He thanked me as we walked home and all I could think to say was “my pleasure, son” because it is such a pleasure to be a part of something so exciting like a child learning of the possibilities ahead of him.
We are going to go watch planes landing soon. Any other ideas to help him explore this new passion?
