Greetings MOCpages! I know it's few and far between that I post mocs these days but I promise, I'm always doing some sort of Lego related activity. Case in point... Here's the Saint Thomas of Villanova Lego Club!
Yours truly is volunteering with the club this year (now that my daughter is a student there). These kids gather after school once a month for some good old fashioned free building fun! There's also a small group within the group that is working on a super special secret project that will be displayed at BrickWorld 2013 in Schaumburg, Il.! You can see the kids working on the project in the main photo.
These pics cover October and November meetings. I totally forgot my camera for the December meeting (Doh!) and we're not having one in January sooo... February will be my next posting for the club.
Thanks for stopping by and lending your support to the Lego club! The kids check out MOCpages and read your comments so thanks!
There's really no need for a fourth wall on this one so we'll see ya on the next post!
Is it bad that the only thing I thought at first was, "They let him around children!?!" But, in all seriousness, this is a great thing you're doing. I wish I had something like this growing up. Happy New Year!
This are some heartwarming pics, they all look so busy and motivated. It is so nice to see that LEGOŽ is the most creative toy for so many generations. Good work, Chris. Is that you in the last but one pic? ;o)
Cheers, Mark. Liberally spread Plastic Fever as widely as you can, across the generations. And then, when the Legapocalypse DOES come; they'll have all the skillsets they need for Survival. Zombie horde?: look at my fine Wall. World War III?: behold, my arsenal of fine weaponry. Immenent asteroid collision?: well, just power up the SuperSmashina-wait... need a trans-blue axle connectorohSNAPwaitisBRICKLINKstillworking?!?!?!?!?!?!? =)
Well done, my man! Keep up the good work; when kids have something to do -- such as a hobby, sport, or other responsibly supervised activity -- early on in their lives, they tend to stay away from those things that lead to real trouble later on. Now if they would only teach you to tie your shoes ...
Oh, great. Phippy finds another way to corrupt our children with his incessant examples of unwaivering kindness, creativity, community involvement, and self-sacrifice. When will this madness end! (Nice to see some shots of this, my friend - looking forward to more.)
I must automatically like this because the viking is the same style as the viking at my dad's school. More importantly, great work here Chris! It's always good to lead kids down the path as early as possible. Looks like a ton of fun.
Chris, I have to hand it to you, you really are a pillar of the community. Not only do you spend tons of time moderating, giving advice, and judging, but to top it all off you work with your neighbourhood's kids in this club. Some cool MOCs being done here, and I look forward to seeing this Brickworld project. Hat's off, all my respect.
This made me think there are many collectors on MOCpages with cabinets full of LEGO pieces! I wish I had extras...but those who proudly display millions of pieces could donate a box load to projects like this one!
Take a bow Chris you combined your love for your daughter and her love for LEGO into a bonding experience one in years to come you will both cherish!
Happy Holidays - friend!
Wish I could have been in the Secret Santa!
