It seems as though all kids love to build things up and knock them down (Ok really who are we kidding adults are just as keen). Kids build a snowman and knock it down. I can just imagine the workers who get to bring a building down with dynamite. Then as the building comes down you can not help but notice the huge gathering of people behind the safety zone fence all gitty and excited to watch a building come down. I know I love watching it when it is on T.V. The count down, "10, 9, 8,.." can not go fast enough.
In our house building things doesn't always come as easy and when they do get built there are little milestones that are developed in just knocking things down.
Below is Emma having a blast knocking down her building. For us we must turn that quick moment into therapy and even though I grab her right hand and encourage her to use her left hand the joy lives on. God is just amazing and we are thankful for all He has given Emma especially her gift of joy. May we forever be able to encourage our four kids even in knocking things down.
