Addicted. To construction trucks.

We recently read the book Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel.  It’s a cute little book about a construction worker and his trusty steam shovel who is no longer useful thanks to changing technology.  In the end they use the steam shovel as a furnace and all is well.  During the book we talked about various jobs of a construction worker and their tools and vehicles.  This set a spark in Jack and Ruby, but moreso Jack.  He is fascinated with all things construction now and makes sure to observe all he sees.

Recently we went to a construction site to check out the progress of a grocery store.  The kids loved it!

Later the kids noticed the construction crew building more homes across the street from us.  Observing their work kept the twins entertained for most of the morning.

I love how a simple construction crew can fascinate my kiddos.
