Comments: Back to the Barefoot Lego Dance

Everybody plays with Legos in our house. I too try to have them stay upstairs, but it is a losing battle. I now fully understand why my mother said that her favorite sound in the world was the tell tale rattle of a Lego being sucked up by the vacuum cleaner.

My Lego-obsessed son is now a 9th grader who has entered several Lego Robotics competitions (and placed very well, even on the state level). As a result, he has decided that he probably wants to go to Georgia Tech and be a mechanical engineer. It is amazing how far Lego's can take a kid!!!

They have some good robot kits. My youngster just got the Fall catalog the other day. At first he said he wanted a few things out of it, but he has not said much lately. He does not have the patience/sit-to-itiveness (is that a word?) to play with Legos for very long.

Let me know if your son does not get the Legos catalog and I can see if arrangements can be made to get mail in his own name (always a thrill for a youngster).

Legoland in CA offers Homeschool discount days. $17/person several Fridays a month during the school year. You'd have a place to stay if you decide to visit!

Beth, The Boy dreams of going to one of the Legolands. I think he has the layouts and different features of the different parks memorized.

So if we ever get to California, we'll definitely be going there.
