Young Mind at Work

Babies are very cute and all that, but there is something truly wonderful about watching an older child learning and thinking and developing creative and motor skills. This past weekend, I visited members of my family, including my grandsons Max (almost 5) and Charlie (almost 3). I spent time with Max while he tried some projects in an activity book. It fascinated me to watch him in deep concentration, pencil in hand, drawing something. I could just about see his young mind stretching and growing while he worked.

Meanwhile, his younger brother Charlie was more interested in romping around with Dad in the living room, squealing and laughing and pretending to be monsters. I guess that's an important part of the development of a young mind as well!

Max looks like a little man with that wristwatch and the serious look on his face!
