My son loves Lego. I am a relaxed housekeeper and it doesn't bother me to have Lego toys scattered around the house. The creativity that goes into all of the battle scenes is fun to watch.
Sometimes I find Legos in the hallway in little clusters. When I ask my son about these he explains that they are on maneuvers.
I have found Legos in the Christmas tree or lining the mantle. My son assures me that these are just major troop movements in preparation for battles.
I usually call for a Lego cleanup when we expect company. One night we planned to have our home Bible study meet at our house. I reminded my son to scan the house and roundup the Lego soldiers and artillery.
As I washed dishes, I heard the sounds of a Lego battle continue in the next room. There were machine gun noises and apparently some serious aerial attacks. Hmmm! That didn't sound like they were being put up.
"Son, I though I told you to put the Lego away"
He had a logical response, "It's a lot easier to put them up after they are all dead."
By the time the company arrived, the Lego were safely away in their storage bin--recharging for another day of battle.
