Today in the Clear Spring School wood shop, the Botany class turned wood samples for the school collection, and the 11th and 12th grade literature class turned and carved pens and practiced their cursive. After years of not writing in cursive, I've found it interesting to explore and renew my own skills. Practice is a lot more fun that in was when I was in 3rd grade. I like the way the pen and ink invite swirls and extra ornamentation to appear, and the process causes one to slow down and write with greater deliberation. I am still getting ready for the Taunton video director to arrive tomorrow morning. My fix on the stool rung actually worked! The photo below is of a Botany student turning wood.
