Since the beginning of the school year, I’ve been co-leading a boy’s group dubbed The Dangerous Boys.
My partner in crime, Heather, and I decided to start a homeschooler’s boy’s club so our boys could have a group to belong to. We meet twice a month and try to learn things, make things, and have fun together. We find ideas using “The Dangerous Book for Boys”.
A few activities we have enjoyed together: fishing, making paper boats and airplanes, playing sports, building with Legos, preparing snacks, and just having a good time being together!
(The boys like to give me a hard time that I make them follow rules and be safe… which, they say, contradicts our group name! I remind them that riding a bike could be dangerous, but wearing a helmet makes them safe!)
Due to illnesses within families, there were just a few boys at today’s meeting… so we postpone our regularly scheduled meeting (sword making and knife safety!) And went on a winter walk! ❄️
A giant hawk did give us the pleasure of flying RIGHT over our heads! It’s wingspan was a marvel to see up close 😳
The boys had great fun jumping over the creek…
I love Eddie’s surprise about actually making his daredevil jump!
After our walk, we had hot chocolate while listening to a lesson about Tornados (thanks Sheri!) ⛈
I want to say what a joy this group has been! I love working with Heather and the other moms! I love being around such positive boy energy! I love how much my boys appreciate belonging to a club- they ask me all the time when the next meeting is!
Remember- if there is a void, who better to fill it then you?!
I was petrified at first, now I look forward to it!
Stepping out of the comfort zone isn’t easy, but the benifits can be extraordinary!
