When you come to see our shed outside of school hours, you will hear lots of noise and activity which is all coming from our 14 year old son and his love of being in there. Oscar loves his woodwork. He loves creating, designing and also giving. Oscar has cleaned out an area in our shed to create his own workshop and has saved up his money from working with his Grandpa (mowing lawns, gardening and lots if manual labour) to buy his own tools, timber and materials. Over the holidays, Oscar has worked diligently on making tractors with trailers to pull behind them. He has also designed and built a dolls house for his little brothers, a kennel for his new puppy (both of which I was going to buy but he asked if he could try making them first) and he has also spent yesterday making a birthday present for his BB (grandmother) for her to hang in his house. Oscar has even spent so much time teaching his 13 year old sister (who has an intellectual disability so needs more instruction than many other kids her age) how to use some of his tools and making mini projects for his broThere to put together and paint. The shed is Oscar's means of getting away from the other 3 kids and to have a few moments to escape the responsibilities of being a big brother, but he has still invited them to join him and included them in his projects. I could have a shed full of grand projects, expensive cars, fast boats or so many other things that many people would see as the most important treasures that they have spent a fortune on, but there is nothing that I could ever be prouder of having in my shed than this boy and the love and passion that he has for being in there.
