Overrun with Origami

My son, Caleb, who is only seven, developed an interest in origami a few months ago. It has become his latest obsession. My house is now covered in paper airplanes and other, increasingly elaborate, origami creations. I got him a ream of recycled copy paper for Christmas and he's working his way through it at an alarming rate. I don't even usually have to help him. He can figure out the complex origami instructions from books better than I can. He's too impatient to make the folds very sharp, but he sure loves his origami.
