Cleavers helped with collecting bottles for the bottle drive. We joined the Outdoor Living group where we had skating lessons with Morena and her friend. After that we roasted dough for buns, hot dogs, and marshmallows over the fire while we drank hot chocolate and sang some songs.
The cleaver kids joined us.
We did skating and Courtney showed them some tricks. Thank you, Courtney.
The kids collected sticks and made a fire to cook lunch.
We wrapped bread dough around a stick, baked over the fire and added the hot dog. We also enjoyed a marshmallow dessert and hot chocolate.
This week all the kids got their final projects figured out and started. We are going with individual projects this year and the boys are applying the knowledge they have gained the past couple project days to achieve their goals. We have two dirt bikes, two snowmobiles and a snowblower being rebuilt as projects this year with the option to do a small group project as well if time permits.
Sheep kids played some games using bubbles and hard boiled eggs to learn about biosecurity principles.
• First year made wood semi tractor.
