This is D12. He is a boat builder.
This is his "boat". If you look close, or maybe not to close you will see the holes in the bottom. It is a former water trough. It lost it's job when the whole bottom started rusting out, and would no longer hold water.
Setting the main sail, or wait the only sail.
Some of the many helpers and advisors involved in this epic adventure.
Setting the sail. Notice it is a paper calender.
His boat did end up at the bottom of the pond a few times. He came in changed clothes and spent all after noon working on patching holes.
He is waiting for a warmer day to set sail again. For now he is content with what he did accomplish. I was very proud of him. This is the child that was afraid to put his face in the water in the pool 2 years ago. For him to set sail across the ocean of a pond in a leaky water trough shows lots of growth in boy like smarts.
I see lots of fun adventures for him in the future as he discovers that life can be fun and not totally frightening.
