We checked out a new indoor rock climbing place called Vertical Ventures. I really enjoyed the free climbing area. At first I was a bit scared but then I got the hang of it.
I did well on the harnessed walls.
I tried some bouldering and after many attempts made it to the top!
I have been working hard on my hedgehog carving.
I went to a 4-H event called County Congress were we learned about office responsibilities and then we had an officer ceremony.
This year I am the club historian. I didn’t want to be president again this year, I wanted to give another kid a shot at it.
I am whipping through my school without much drama this year.
My bug collection is growing rapidly.
Archery is still going well. I am really learning a lot and quickly. I really want to compete for 4-H in the future.
We took a few gymnastics classes but they they raised the place and changed the day and it didn’t fit our schedule. E is taking a class on Fridays when I take a PE class, but at a different place.
As you can see my hedgehog is completed.
I am now starting on a turtle. I love working with the group of older gentleman.
It is going to be a fun year with extra activities. I am really enjoying my new archery program. I have a great coach who is really pushing me to excel. I am hitting Xs at the 10 yard fairly consistent and starting to do better at the 20 yard targets.
I am working in my 4-H project books early this year to get them done and out of the way before the chaos of the holidays starts up.
I am also taking a wood carving class. So far so good. I have only drawn blood the first two classes.
We are learning about relief and 3D carving.
We got a new desk for me to work at this year. So far it is working out really well. I haven’t exactly figured out how to sit on the yoga ball. Somedays I sit fine…
Other days I create an entirely new way to sit. Sometimes I sit on my knees and bounce.
We wrapped up our summer of free bowling.
I am starting a new woodworking project, a hedgehog!
We had a fun time in hip hop dance class this summer. I learned a few new moves and built up my confidence a little. The classes were small so we had lots of attention.
I was always a beat off the other kids but I made quite an improvement and was even able to memorize the routines.
Hedgie just wanted to say:
Hello and welcome to August!
