William is going to be 11 on Thursday. I know I say it every year, but where HAVE those years gone? How quickly he is growing up, growing up into a young man, somewhere between childhood and the teenage years.
And slowly but surely, growing out of toys and into laptops, mobile phones and iPod Touches! One of the toys he has recently deemed ‘no longer required’ is his Geomag magnetic building set. Magnetic sticks and balls – so simple, but so much fun, endless possibilities, and it has provided hours of entertainment over the years (adults seem to love it as much as children – one of our friends once spent an entire evening building complicated pyramid structures – although they became more prone to collapse as the evening went on – which seemed to be directly related to the amount of alcohol being consumed, funnily enough!)
So last week, before we put the Geomag away up in the loft for my grandchildren to play with one day, William couldn’t resist making one last model with it. So I took a photo.
