RileyAnn finished up her last Keepers of the Faith club meeting for the school year.  She learned many new handicrafts and life skills throughout the past two years including sewing, canning, cooking/baking, decoupage, card making, scrapbooking, first aid, and more!  These photos were from the February meeting where she made three types of candles: a container candle, beeswax candle, and a dipped candle...see it grow below.

Again, we know that the human hand is a wonderful and exquisite instrument to be used in a hundred movements exacting delicacy, direction and force; every such movement is a cause of joy as it leads to the pleasure of execution and the triumph of success.  We begin to understand this and make some efforts to train the young in the deft handling of tools and the practice of handicrafts. - Charlotte Mason in A Philosophy of Education
