Waiting for his Shift to Start
for a long day of appliance repair

On our trip to KidZania in Kobe, Japan last month, which included stints working on a train and hosting a radio show, he also took time to learn appliance repair. Already five years ago he was an expert on vacuum cleaners, so it's only natural that's what he worked on here.

That is an awesome post! I like the first photo just because Anthony is so cute, and “High Five Upon Completion” because you really captured the “I did it” euphoria expression. More kids should have the take-it-apart-and-fix-it experience at this age.

Anthony looks so professional and capable. Awesome!
This is great timing, as Greg has an irregular school holiday next Monday, and we’re thinking about going to Kidzania to take advantage of the smaller weekday crowds.
