Trey has been wanting to buy a certain Lego Star Wars set but his allowance money from doing household chores hasn’t quite been enough. We suggested he as the neighbors if he could do some yard work for cash. Thanks to a recent storm, two of our neighbors had tons of pine cones littering their yard. They each paid him $3 to pick them all one. It was no easy task either – one yard took him over 30 minutes to clear!
It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today we heard the quiet but steady heartbeat of our son. He has grown so much, yet that heart continues to beat steadily – every minute of every day. What a miracle! Our Creator God is so great and so full of grace!
We all know Trey’s favorite toy is LEGOs. Lately he’s been taking his building skills and applying them to movie making thanks to the great free Lego Movie Maker app. It lets Trey use an iPhone or iPad to create stop-motion animation with his sets. Here are two of this first films. The Alligator one is really simple, but the Rex one gets more complex. He started adding sound effects and voice over to step it up.
Rex vs. the Sith
“I don’t think Trey is a good name while I’m a grown-up, but it’s a good name while I’m a kid.”
This past Sunday night was the adult choir’s Christmas Special at Pinecrest. For two songs they brought out the children’s choir to perform. Trey has never been much for public performance (especially of the musical kind) but he put some effort in – especially when it came to the hand motions.
