Well, we bought the boy a stick shift to drive. Maybe this is no longer a relevant skill, but we threw it at him anyway. (He thinks maybe once he sat in a standard transmission car before we bought this teen-mobile.)
Steven's pretty glad to have driving a standard figured out, and Jaclyn looks forward to learning it next summer so that she can be the cool-girl-who-knows-how-to-drive-a-standard.
Speaking of lost skills, I have fond memories of playing underneath quilts on quilting frames, but it was a first today for Carmen and Chloe. (Note the headbands made from the quilt scraps.) (Excuse me, Chloe's wasn't a head band it was a 'buff'. What???)
Chloe's school teacher is having a baby in a few weeks so Chloe had a few friends over to tie a baby quilt together. None of them had done it before, but they caught on fast.
Plus they had Carmen to help. Carmen learned how to tie a quilt several years ago when Jaclyn was a Miamaid and she did it for a YW activity. (I'm not clear on how Carmen pulled that one off since she wasn't even in YW's yet.)
I think I'll have to slip this photo into the card when they give the baby blanket to their teacher.
