There are many things you can do with your children and grandchildren. Building a bird house or a bird feeder is a gift that keeps on giving. They are simple to build and I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t enjoy watching our colorful feathered friends. You can make it as simple or as complex as you want and you are limited only by your imagination. The lessons learned and the time spent with your children or grandchildren are priceless! I have included some links below just to help you get started.

Snapshots in Time: “Patience and Perseverance”

We found our research into every facet of the history and the building of our project immensely fascinating. We were thoroughly enjoying ourselves and that was not likely to change. During the first few months my grandson had read several books on the great railroads and how they changed America. We had been on hundreds of web sites together and had gained an appreciation for just how much the railroads affected the way people lived, worked and played. The educational opportunities our journey presented us with seemed almost limitless. Our combined enthusiasm would become the key to unlocking countless new doors into a world of exciting experiences we never dreamed were possible. My grandson and I also learned that if we were going to achieve all of our goals we would have to have a great deal of patience and perseverance!
