Boys will be boys - but it doesn't mean the Mama's heart can't skip a few beats in the mean time! They wanted to use their pocket knives to sharpen their pencils - and although the supervision typically falls to my husband - he was at work and it fell to me. SO... I grab my trusty camera. Took a deep breath and let them practice.
All in all they showed great judgement (thanks to the groundwork laid by both their grandpa & father)... but I was there to make darned sure no blood was lost.
Now - for a glass of wine.
|My oldest's progress.|
|My youngest gets an A for effort!|
|The finished product - maybe I should let them practice more!|
