For those of you who don’t know, we home-school our children. Elizabeth does most of the lessons but occassionally I get a chance to provide some instruction. Elizabeth has become a true professional in this area – she is well researched on techniques and curriculum. This particular lesson involved ratios (water to powder mix), tool safety (operating the drill mixer), eye hand coordination (minimizing trowel marks), balancing and cooperation.
Plus, it always nice to have someone to hand me the trowel when I drop it.
