Bruce held his first woodworking class for the kids yesterday and it was a rousing success. (Perhaps a little loud when all 11 kids were hammering at the same time, but super fun nonetheless.)
Finn helped with a little cleanup before everyone arrived.
He really likes the shop vac, so long as he has his “ear mops” on.
Once everyone was here, Bruce gave a demonstration on what they were going to make: a platform.
I also took a couple of videos.
Then, the hammering began.
When the platforms were all built, they painted them.
Poor Ezra was sick and couldn’t participate in the class. He slept through most of it, only coming downstairs during dinner to drink some juice and promptly throw up all over the patio. After that he felt much better.
I don’t have any pictures of the finished products because we moved directly from the class into dinner and drinks. The kids ran around like crazy and the parents had a chance to chat. It was great! (Except for the throw up.)
