Jake's 15th Birthday
#1
This weekend my wife and I were discussing what we could get our youngest, Jake, for his upcoming 15th birthday. For me, this was a no-brainer! He is going to get his permit but I figured since we will be starting on his engine in the next few weeks, why not get him something he can and will use from now on? I went to Sears today and ordered a 200 piece tool set for him and it should be here this week! I can't wait to see his face!

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. James 3:17 (KJV)

Great gift and this way YOUR tools may not disappear! When my two boys were young I kept finding my tools all over the place including the yard where they worked on their bicylces!

Yeah, I have a few rusty tools that were left by kids outdoors. I can just hear Jake now some thirty years from now asking his kids why they left his wrenches out in the yard. "My dad gave me those tools when I turned 15!"

Mr. Mac - Excellent choice! We did the same for our youngest son years ago, as he always had a strong affinity for mechanical stuff (read taking things apart and leaving them all over the place). Now he's a FT tech, doing very well both taking them apart and putting them back together. And his enormous tool collection and box put my stuff to shame. Feed the need.
