This afternoon the boys wanted to use hammers and saws in the woods. Some of the children had done this before, for some of them it was something new. We talked about how practice can make things easier, and how we learn skills by persevering and practicing. Even though the boys found sawing quite difficult they persevered. I was really impressed with how hard they worked. I was also impressed with how quickly Tyler put up a den with onlyÂ a little help. He took it down even faster!
