I've tried starting a blog about our Keepers Group. We'll see how that goes. I thought it might be helpful for those just wanting that information. I'm not sure if I'll still post about it here or not? Any thoughts? Here's a link to the other blog and the post I just put up there as well.
We've made our plans for the upcoming year. For our group we just meet once per month as our busy (and conflicting) schedules just don't permit meeting more often. Here's what we have planned.
Sept - Herbs. We'll be planting and learning about herbs.
Oct - Card making. I'll be teaching this one and am looking forward to it. Since it isn't one of the activities in the manual, I'll be coming up with my own requirements. I'm hoping that the timing will be good in allowing the girls to make cards to send or to give for Christmas.
Nov - Pie-baking. Yum! Just in time for the holidays! We're hoping too that this will be something the girls want to practice on and bring to future meetings to share.
Dec - Part 2 of herbs. Taking the herbs we've grown and learning how to use them - in cooking, sachets and more.
Jan - Storytelling. Learning more about the art of storytelling and how to put it into practice by telling a variety of stories to both family and friends. We'll so some sharing/ storytelling at future meetings.
Feb - Dollmaking, Learning how to paint and embroider a face. Learning how to make jointed legs/arms. Learning how to make different types of hair.
Mar - Part 2 of dollmaking. The girls will have chosen the specifics of their doll and will start making it.
Apr & May - We are holding open for a couple of options. Either adding another class or recreational activity (I'm lobbying for badmitton) or finishing up projects we've already started.
We are looking forward to a fun year!
