We are very excited to have Grace and Aiden get started in a 4-H program this year. The one we chose is an alpaca club and it is just 2 minutes from our house so it works out perfectly. They were each assigned their own alpaca to train for the 4-H fair and they will also be learning how to dye the wool, process it and make things from it. I had taken them down this past week to visit and see if they wanted to do it, and after meeting the owner and walking around the gorgeous property we were pretty stoked about it.
Christian took the kids to their first meeting so he took these pictures, and it looks like they are having a lot of fun to me! I love those big alpaca eyes.
The other kids in the club are great too, and we are expecting this to be a great opportunity for them this year. I love the fact that they are going to be doing art and working with the animals. The one owner of the farm is an art teacher so she has some pretty fun projects planned for them. One of them being needle felting, which is something that I had been wanting to do with the kids but wasn't sure how to get started. I know they are going to love it.
