You know what this is? I will tell you what it looks like--it looks like one of those awesome flip RC cars. And that is what it is on the outside. But with the simple, genius addition of a piece of PVC pipe, it becomes a world of opportunity for a little boy who can't play with the regular toy. See how much he is enjoying it in the video? Amazing. That smile is worth the world to me.
Dan had just seen the truck in the store and thought he could modify it for Dakin. You see, Dan is one of those truly kind and thoughtful people. It touches me so much to know he is using his God-given talent for engineering to help Dakin have a toy--something so simple and that so many take for granted. Dan, I can't say how grateful we are to you--for your thoughtfulness and your giving nature, for your talent and concern for my sweet little one.
And if we ever get a house with more rooms, you have a standing invitation. At the very least, dinner. :)
