I worked from home today (it was our annual pretend earthquake), and so, we finished homework long before bed time. “Would you like to play on the iPad or come and help me do some soldering?” I asked the boy.
“Hmmm…” (weighs the options carefully) “Help with soldering!”
Actually, this is a posed picture. However, he did put in a half-dozen feeders, and learned all about flux and cleanliness. Maybe model trains will never be their thing, but I sure enjoy having the little helpers.
