Another productive day! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now!
I walked my dog for 55 minutes in the morning before the cold front hit. I have to walk him for at least 50 more minutes this week.
DS7 finished sewing his pants. They turned out really nice!
DS15 finished sewing his hoodie. It's... not great, but thank goodness he actually finished something. He learned a bit too. "RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER!"
DS7 made most of a cupcake cake. He made a Yule tree. We still need to make frosting for the trunk, and bake star-shaped sugar cookies for the top.
Both kids baked cupcakes.
DS7 trained my dog for agility. He'll do agility in 4-H in 2 years. They made a little progress on weave poles. They're starting running contacts too. (it's not going well)
DS7 walked my dog a couple times. He'll do obedience in 4-H in 1 year, so it's important that they learn to walk together well in advance
We painted rocks for an upcoming event. 3 sets of samples done. DS15 started painting the rocks solid colors. It will make the class flow better. The class is for 5K - 2nd grade, so the worst part is getting the backgrounds painted (waiting for several coats of paint to dry). We need to prep about 100 rocks.
DS15 has a list of tasks he needs to do at a computer at the library tomorrow. I hope he gets them all done!
I trained dogs at the shelter. There is a black dog who gets frustrated easily and barks. I taught her the "quiet bark" trick. She's still frustrated, but she wasn't stressing out the other dogs. Winning!
Now that I can hear myself think, I'm scrambling to develop materials for a 4-H class I'm teaching this weekend. Typical! I have one more class the following weekend and then I should be done with solo events for this year. If I don't sign up for more...
It's above freezing, sunny and not windy! Time to walk the dog!
