As promised I am ready to share my ideas - but alas, I still am holding out on #5 - I knew four things right away that I wanted to revisit, refresh, and just plain try for the first time! I have listed them below and the answer to the big question . . . WHY??
How to shoot a gun . . . I have thought about this for quite some time. I was not raised around guns being the oldest of 3 girls, but my husband was always good to teach our two kids to respect guns and went to gun safety classes with both of them, took them hunting, target shooting, etc. I stayed behind and really had no interest. So why now? Just have felt like it would be best to know the basics since we have several guns in our home. In this world of such craziness - I also think about protecting myself - and although I don't anticipate ever really needing to - it just seems like a good thing to learn. So Annie get your gun . . .
4 week algebra I course . . . This one will make my daughter laugh or cry I'm not sure which. Casey is a math major and teaches high school and college math classes. All I ask for is a 2-4 week brief introductory course to Algebra I - - - I think she could easily accommodate me on this endeavor next summer when she has a little down time??? She is working on her Master's Degree in Math - so not sure she has much down time - - - I chose this because it bothers me that I struggle with math now - I never was any good at it - how did I ever raise a math major I don't know - - - but I want to try a shot at math again!
Card Certified CPR . . .This one is easy peasy - I work at a hospital and am required to take a brief CPR course each year - - - I can also choose to become card certified and I can do that on the clock even! I think everyone should know it!!
The "Electric Slide" . . .Oh yeh - and this one sounds like the most fun!!! At my daughters wedding I watched all the ladies do the Electric Slide - looked like great fun!!! Now that I'm becoming more active with exercise, golfing, etc. I think I'll give dancing a try! So as soon as I can round up my daughters, granddaughters, nieces, and sisters, we will be sliiiidddiing away!
Keep following along as I share the experiences - I'm sure there is bound to be some! And let me know if you decide to join us in this challenge! What will you learn this year?
