I want share the proud moment I had this weekend. Our town had its annual Fair this weekend. One of the pavilions had a kids section. The local lumber yard supplied the material, pre-drilled nail holes and let the kids build their own tool box. Our little girl is 21 months old. She was thrilled. Can’t talk yet ,but was right in there helping ME !.
This event took place yesterday and I am still BEAMING.

If you can get to a Home Depot, I don’t know if they do it at all of them, but here they have a kid’s workshop every month. It’s the first weekend of the month. I carry my little one’s and they love it. They enjoy it so much that they’ve started marking it on the calendar to make sure I don’t forget and kake them miss one. When we got the new calendars at the beginning of this year, they went ahead and wrote Kid’s Workshop on the first saturday of all the month’s in there, and it’s a sixteen month calendar.

I think in one of the photos I could see her say to the girl in the pink “You think this is fun, you should see my Grandpa’s plane collection.”

Great photos of a great time spent with the kids.

I’ve heard that Lowes has a kid’s workshop now similar to Home Depot. I’ve never been to their’s, but it may be something else to check out. Unfortunately, the nearest Lowes to me is about forty miles away. I can’t even get my kids interested in one that far away, especially since I was told they have theirs every weekend.
