Our second visit for my son's Eagle Scout Project was very successful and I think a great learning opportunity for the boys.
They were able to assist and learn a bit from these men.
It was looking pretty good!
Tomatoes and Marigolds were planted in the boxes.
On the upper garden they planted zucchini, green beans, summer squash, cucumbers and pumpkins.
We were able to talk to one of the Veterans who was flying a plane over Germany and was shot down. He then spent the rest of his war time in Stalag Luft I. A true American Hero!!
Hopefully this last Memorial Day and future ones will mean more to these boys!
Our next visit included my son "getting" to hold this baby kangaroo.
One of the VA personnel raises these babies until they are about one year old.
He was not to happy to hold this little guy after he had heard my story of visiting a Kangaroo habitat in Australia and being KICKED so hard in the leg that I could barely walk for a week. (All because I had run out of food to feed them. I got out of there fast.)
We cleaned up the rabbit hutches and gave them some new straw.
I think they were a couple of happy bunnies!
My two "growing fast" kids!!
All in all it was a good project for us to do and I think the boys learned allot!!
We have a couple of little things left to do up there and I think we will be done.
Hope your summer is off to a great start!!
