Last weekend we took the bus out to camp at one of the nicest campgrounds we’ve been to (not that we’ve been to a lot, but it will be getting a post all it’s own soon …). As of right now, the bus is not finished.
None of the 12 VDC lighting.
No solid walls.
Exposed outer skin, insulation, and wiring.
And yet, our boy loved it. He can’t wait to go out again.
And it was a great lesson. He told us that “things don’t have to be perfect in order to be fun.”
We talked about it and it seems like he’s less likely to get upset over a long-range goal taking time to achieve if he can see the progress and enjoy it along the way.
Huzzah for the bus being a teaching tool!
