4H again.

Yesterday was a big 4H day with 2 classes meeting on the same day.  We had the homeschool 4H art class in the morning.  That lasts 2 hours, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  They worked in clay yesterday, which my daughter has always wanted to do, so she's happy.  They had a very good time with this.  Then, yesterday afternoon, they had the woodworking class and built the birdhouses.   Only the 2 younger kids went with me.  The teen was on the phone and playing guitar, 2 things he does simultaneously for some reason.  The younger kids really enjoyed making the birdhouses.  They have great plans for painting them at the next meeting and will enter them in the county fair in July.  Today we don't have anything.  Tomorrow, there's a 4H first aid class that we might go to.  I do think first aid is a good skill to have and we have to be in town anyway, because older son has game time at the library.  As for today, we're home and we'll be doing school, much to the children's dissappointment, I'm sure.

Sounds like wonderful handson education! I think first aid is a wonderful idea! (I have taught Tammy about burns and bleeding, but that's about it.)
