Fishing

Many thanks to Rob and Sam for teaching us about fly fishing.

First we learned to cast

…and we didn’t get tangled!

Next (the following Saturday) we went to Rocky Ford. (Marisa, Jake, and Rob pictured in the distance.)

Kim, Alaina, Holden, Griffin, William, Kathleen.

Where we (the kids) had real success!

Waffles

We had a waffle iron test kitchen on Sunday, June 17. Each test started with the students making a hypothesis that, to Sandy’s surprise, turned out to be remarkably accurate. Brownie batter was the favorite. Cookie dough failed miserably. Cake mix worked well, but we were tired of sweets. Hash browns didn’t cook so well, but they made a great palate cleanser. Many thanks to Doug Walter and Carolyn Kelly for loaning us waffle irons and to Kim Martinson for preparing the cookie dough.

Holiday Crafts

Join us on Sunday, December 3 as classes combine and Dan and Kathy Swenson share their artistic talents as we make a variety of Christmas crafts and ornaments. Parents are encouraged to join us after the service and create with their children since there won’t be a Saturday craft day this year. Bring a sack lunch and stay late (or have some of the provided macaroni and cheese).

I have a pretty warm spot in my heart for ornament making. When I was 8 years old we made ornaments in my UU Sunday school class. Now, 50 years later, I still have that ornament and get it out for our tree every year.

No kids in your life but you’d like to make some of the holiday crafts? Come join the fun either during Sunday school or after the service. Everyone is welcome!
