Daddy's helper

“Man is a tool-using Animal.... Nowhere do you find him without tools; without tools he is nothing, with tools he is all.” ~Thomas Carlyle

Our oldest learned all about that "tool-using Animal" yesterday. Boy, was he psyched when his daddy came inside and asked, "Jacob, wanna use a power tool?" I've never seen him move quite so fast. So, with some trepidation I followed them outside to capture the moments on camera. This is just another one of those father-son moments that I adore watching. This is also another one of those moments that reminds me that he's not little anymore!!

Hey, Jacob! Can you slow down on this whole growing-up-business, please!! I'd greatly appreciate it! Love, Jennifer

Boys and their toys! Why don't they get excited about vacuum cleaners and irons, aren't they power tools?
