A little boys lego collection

Our grandson Andrew who is 6 -years old has been collecting legos for quite a few years.
He has always been into the tiny legos even when he was not old enough for them.

He loves the sets that make a town, police station, fire station etc. His mom and dad have bought him plenty of these through the years for him.
He would ask for them for his birthday and Christmas so the rest of us would buy them for him. Any money he earned doing jobs he spent on Legos.

Legos is by far his favorite toy because your imagination can run wild.

His lego collection was in the school room because it was a place he could go and build in peace without the disruption from his twin sisters or baby brother.Most of the time he would do this just to have a place he could leave stuff built at. Sometimes his sisters would go in there and build stuff with him.

When the barn flooded the water from the goats and chickens pen and stalls rushed into the school room ruining his Lego collection along with all the school books.

Our daughter said even with Clorox she does not feel safe trying to save the lego collection.

I had him pick out two sets and then I picked out a 3rd that will be delivered to him next Thursday. He picked out a fire rescue, a lodge and I picked out a fishing boat set.

With children, their things mean as much to them as ours does to us. He was very stressed during the storm thinking it was going to take down their house. He was so excited to see the water finally going down.

The least those of us in his family can do is replace as many as we can to help a little boys imagination be stimulated once again by Legos.

Buttercup the goat

This is Buttercup the goat she was bought at the same time as Princess.

When buying these little goats even though they are registered it is very important to view pictures of the farms first before putting down large deposits. This is a lesson our daughter has learned the hard way.

These babies were very small probably 7 pounds at the most when they were picked up. This past Sunday we weighed them and they were 9.5#s and that was after getting a lot of grain, hay and goat supplement milk replacer.

Our cat Mr. Bird weighs about 16#s to give you an example of how tiny these little goats are. He is actually taller than they are.

Buttercup was taken to the vet because she was coughing badly and she was diagnosed with pneumonia from being in overcrowded conditions at her previous home.

She is fine now fine and they are both getting daily injections of antibiotics for 5 days. Giving shots is not easy to goats they scream like a child.

We have been taking extra precautions since the little goats were sick to make sure they stay healthy and continue to grow properly.

Buttercup loves to run, jump and climb on the tires and even sleep inside the tires. The children are leash training the goats and they are all doing quite well.

I am now considering getting my own goats but do I want to keep them here or at our home or our daughter’s house with her hers I have to think about this.
