Teaching Kids to Create

I found Jerry in his shop this month with our grandson and had to capture the memory. Look at the concentration as they shape the wood together, creating as a team. I love this!

Some things stay with us for decades, like my appreciation for the skills my father took the time to teach me fifty-some years ago. I wouldn’t trade what he gave me for anything.

I’m sure the returns on Jerry’s investment in this little guy will be just as priceless.

Passing on the Legacy


One thing we enjoy when camping with our grandchildren is coaching them in their archery skills. They love spending time with Grandpa Jerry and Grandma Kathy thinking up competitive games with the targets. We almost missed the opportunity last summer as the weeks flew by and we hadn’t had our family camping trip of 2017, but thankfully we pulled it off.

It’s hard to imagine anything more satisfying than sharing the great outdoors with our young ones.

Note to self: Include knife handling skills on our next trip. It might be time to sculpt the next generation of knife makers!
