kids are AWESOME
Today I had the privilege to work with 6 great kids from 1st grade to 4th grade. They signed up to my after school program Adventure Leadership , and when I asked them what do they think we are going to do ? the answers were " we are going to be leaders" , " we are going to go on adventure", "we are going to learn new things".
each and every one of the answers was right. I think we covered it all today.
They led a blindfolded partner through a maze.
They learned how to do 8 figure knot.
They went outside and dragged my car with a long rope.
It was an adventure, what I appreciate most about this group is that they are so EXCITED about it all, and eager to try everything. When a kid leaves a session and says that it was Awesome, I feel like I did what I came to do.
BTW I didn't think that they will be able to drag the car, but they DID. There is strength when you work together.
