We have just returned from our annual cherry picking excursion. This year was the first year that we let our older son get up in a ladder to pick cherries. He hasn't shown us until now that he has the coordination to hold a bucket and balance himself on a ladder until now. Prior to getting the orchard he spent the entire trip detailing how he was going to build a cherry picking device in the future using all these gadgets and possibly an omnimount. I love that the child has such a creative mind but wish he focused his energy at times on using the skills he already has to do a job. My son is forever trying to come up with ways to build things to do a job for him. I am trying to impress upon him that sometimes the best tool for the job is the one you were born with.
