Creator extraordinaire!

Jax likes to make stuff.
He is a creator.
He is completely dedicated to a creation task.
He can sit and work on a project for hours.
I am not exaggerating! 
His favourite are those melting bead projects, those tiny beads you painstakingly place on a mat and then melt together with an iron. (I couldn't find a picture of any of those project, unfortunately.)
He is the only one in our family to completely fill and finish the large square mat with beads!
It took him two days.
He has such determination and dedication, it surprises me.
Except when it comes to cleaning up... by then he is much too tired from all his creating to clean up. 
That's what he tries to use as his excuse anyhow!

It's funny, how as a parent, you think you know your kids... and there are things they are born with that later in life you will say, 'ya, they were just born that way!'
But then there are these unexpected things.
When he was 1 and 2 years old and going down the twisty slide head first and climbing cupboards and breaking most toys or siblings crafts he could get his hands on, I never thought he would be interested at such a early age in sitting still for hours to make stuff.
Guessed that personality trait wrong!

Here are just a few of his latest creations:

I was thinking the same Allise....Apple/tree!
Jax probably is tired after his creations, especially if they take two days, let alone hours! He.He. A lot of concentration.
Love the creations.....and I remember helping kids at school (K-3's)with those little beads you iron after. Man, they were challenging! Fall apart if you bumped them the wrong way....impossible to place a certain colour where you wanted it!!!! WAY TO GO JAX! Patience beyond his almost four years!
Mya looks so adorably sweet beside her proud brother!
Love farm gramma :)
