The Boy is home schooled. He has always been home schooled. When he was little I just couldn't see turning my precious baby over to the public school system. It has worked out great for us. I am not a home school snob,I don't think I am better than people who use the public school system.I know homeschooling is not right for everyone.
We are flexible in our learning because of Hubby's job. We do a year round school but when Hubby is home it is focused less on book work and more on manly life skills!
The Boy learned some basic metal work this time.
He built a goat stanchion for milking his goats in anticipation of Sweet Pea having her babies.Sadly,that has not worked out. Guinness, another of our goaties is due in about a month and she has kidded twice,both times twins, so we are hoping for better results with her.
Anyway back to shop class! The Boy learned to cut metal with a torch.
Hubby is very safety conscious in his old age,he can't shake of those injuries as well as he did when he was younger, and makes The Boy learn the right and safe way to do things!
Hubby only instructed,The Boy did most all the work by himself, even the welding!
He is grinding the edges smooth.Nothing sharp or rough to hurt his goaties!
He is putting in the floor in this one.
He is almost done in this one.
I didn't get a pict yet of it completely finished.He also made an adjustable thing out of wood to go where their heads are held to adjust for the different sized goats.Not bad for a 12 year old!
The Sweet Pea update.She is living in my bathroom as we think it is too cold for her outdoors with her big bald side.She is doing well but all of the after birth has not come out,if it doesn't by tonight we are back to the vets in the morning.I know that may sound gross to some but that is part of birth and farm life!
Hoping everyone is staying warm and safe!
