Little off topic

My youngest son who turns 14 next Saturday has been volunteering as a Junior Docent at the Charlotte Museum of History for almost two years now. He typically volunteers on re-enactment days. He's usually one of the actors during Revolutionary War/Civil War days at the museum and several more in the area. He's been a drummer boy and the son of the tavern keeper as well as one of the actors who shows children about the games the kids played during those times. He really enjoys it, even if he's one of the only boys in it. A couple of weeks ago, he volunteered at the Schiele Museum in Gastonia. He was initially assigned to games again, but asked if he could do something different. He was assigned to work with the blacksmith. He spent all day working with the blacksmith, stoking the fires, adding fuel as needed. Eventually, he was taught how to work the smithy and was able to make a cooking hook.

It's a hook for hanging pots over the fires for cooking. The blacksmith was so impressed with his work ethic and how well he did, that he's been asked to become the apprentice to the blacksmith. Apparently, they've been looking for a couple of years for an apprentice, but no one stood out until my son spent time with him. Looks like he's going to spend one or two weekends a month at the museum helping the blacksmith and learning the craft. Next year, there is a possibility of a field trip to Williamsburg as well to see how they do it up there. I'm very proud of Cuinn. He's been extremely helpful as a  junior docent and he's very much involved in his volunteering. I'm happy that he's found something he really likes to do as well.

Well, that's it for me. Remember, shoot safe, shoot straight!
