The first Lego Club meeting was on Thursday, Nov 7, 2019. Here are excerpts from leaders’ comments.
It went very well. Amanda taught them a short lesson on skyscrapers and then they each talked about what they brought with them. The moms enjoyed getting to know each other while they (the children) played. - Robin Zook
We had a brief moment of education and each participant shared their build and spoke about it. Then free time for play and build!!! We had 4 kids total I think there is going to be more next time (some were sick this week) everyone got along well and cleaned up with no problem and quite quickly too as soon as they were told. I’m enjoying it and I think it’s a wonderful idea. -Amanda Zook
Our newest club, the Knitting Club (for girls only), will be starting Wednesday, Dec 4, 2019. Whether you are a novice or an experienced knitter, come join the fun. Do you need a gift for Grandma or Uncle George? You can easily make one before Christmas arrives. Let Rebecca show you how! Sign up via the HAHA website.
Passing on a Legacy
By Beth Mellott
My grandmother loved to crochet. I have more than a dozen afghans around my house as proof. What I don't have is her knowledge and skill. Now, after she has been gone for more than 10 years, I wish I could have been able to share her gift with my own daughter. What a legacy that would have been.
My daughter is graduated now but if I could have found someone with my grandmother's skill willing to teach her, I would have loved to have given my daughter the chance to learn to crochet. That is what clubs are all about - introducing those with skills and passions to our children. Whether it is a life skill like crocheting or a fun skill like hiking, we, as homeschoolers, just want to give our kids the best opportunities we can.
So what are YOU passionate about? Do you like to read? Do you enjoy hiking? What skills have been passed down to you from your parents or grandparents? Do you know how to crochet? Do you enjoy woodworking? or scrapbooking? Whatever the case, we would love to connect you with other homeschoolers. Do you have an idea for a club but don't know where to start? That's where we come in!
