19 billion LEGO bricks are produced each year. Judging from this photo and the creations around our house, I’d say we have about one year’s worth of production within our home (minus the hundreds I have vacuumed up and sent away in the trash). I may be exaggerating, just a little, but not much.
For our Summer Cup activity today, all five members of the Calandro Clan are participating in a new adventure, one I’m sure will become tradition: LEGO Day. This idea came from the youngest member, M3, who shouted out the suggestion as we were putting events into the Summer Cup.
Our simple LEGO Day idea: We build all day on a concept that is decided in the morning. At the end of the day we see what we have built. We may need to break in the middle of the day to take M2 to the doctor because he is running a fever of 103.3, but we’ll figure out how we can work that into the rules of the day. We may do some building in the car on the way to his appointment. We’re waiting for a call back from the doctor. As you know, we’re making this up as we go along, and we adjust our plans when necessary.
So, this is our “Before” page. Tune in later for our “After”.
Let the building begin!
