A common family activity for us now is to hop in the van, and drive around town, stopping at all of himself's favourite spots. A number one favourite is the Basilica of St. John the Baptist, quickly followed by The Kirk, the Colonial Building, Government House and the Rooms. It's actually a lovely way to spend an evening, all of us together, stopping by Tim Horton's on the way for some coffee, and going for a little drive around.
I can't help but think how cute it would be if he could give guided tours of the city, he knows EVERYWHERE by name...if it weren't for those pesky child labour laws. We've exhausted the local library's books on St. John's, and we're now moving on to Big Ben, Eifel Tower, Golden Gate Bridge....the list goes on and on. I didn't realize that I would learn so much during homeschool!
It's so nice to see a new interest develop, and amazing to watch the amount of information that a bright little mind can suck up. It's also been fun to watch the many drawings of these buildings that he's been pumping out, with an amazing eye for detail. Not to mention the many renderings in Lego and wooden blocks. Future artist? Future architect? Future engineer? Who knows.......the options are as limitless as this city is beautiful.
