During Alan’s fun-filled weekend, he found time to make me a laundry cart from Tinker Toys. It’s the new-and-improved model of an earlier version that he created. It’s designed to help me wheel the laundry basket from one end of the apartment to the other.
Before and after Chinese class, Alan loved building with blocks in the Children’s area on the 4th floor (conveniently located across the hall from the Foreign Language room).
Here are a couple of his best creations. Above is a tower with a bridge to the entranceway. Below is a pair of houses. The first house even has its own garden in the front yard!
