"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."

After our visit to RAF Cosford air museum, Opeie couldn't wait to get home and get the LEGO out. Part of the museum had an exhibit based around the Berlin wall and he had asked a lot of questions about it while we were there. He thought it was really interesting that a city was separated into two halves by a huge wall and was asking questions like "what if people in the east had friends and family in the west" it was really quite cute how concerned he was. When we got home he got those amazing bricks out and built his own berlin wall, with upset, angry looking people. He then broke down part of the wall letting in the happy people after we had watched a video on youtube of the wall being opened and how happy and relieved the german people were.

This is one of the things I really love about LEGO. It doesn't matter what it is we are covering, somehow it can be re-created by those amazing bricks.
