My oldest asked me this week if he could start a blog to share some of his Lego creations.  I said sure, figuring it would be a nice way to be in touch with the grandparents and a good way for him to practice language.  He thought it should be named, “Leg-ology” but I imagined creepy people googling his site hoping for gams so I suggest maybe, “Lego-ology” would be a little more exact.  He’s all about the exact.   He wants to take his own photos but I can’t bring myself to let him use my Nikon.  A camera is on the wish-list for his birthday and I like the idea of him being in charge of the visual as well as the text but in the meantime I’m taking the shots with his direction.

Here is his site, Lego-ology, and an excerpt from his last post:




The first thing he wanted people to know last night was, “my    blog will  be closed on holidays.”  So NOTED!

This morning he showed me one of his Lego creations and asked, “Did we blog this yet?” Oh man, I’m in trouble.  I can see the computer slipping through my fingers already.  What’s next, the television remote?

So if you or your kiddos like Legos show her/him my guy’s site.  I’m sure he’d also love to see photos of their lego work as well!

    “Can we blog this?” is exactly why I am not suggesting this to my boys! 🙂 Nice creations, love the bed!

  8. Alexis Says:

    I can’t tell my daughter about this because she will definitely want her own blog and I am so not ready for that!

    Lovely site, that Lego-ology.

  9. Lisa Says:

    So sweet how he wants to be just like mom!

    That’s so funny! Is it possible for children to have their own blogs? I wondered about doing a class one with the children I teach-not to put their photos but, like you to put their creations. They would love it I think! Those lego beds are great by the way!
