Chance and Jack started Sailing Into Science at Lake Merritt, which is about 10 minutes away on the freeway in Oakland. One of our home school groups organized it, so Jack and Chance know quite a few kids in the class, which makes it easier for them to feel comfortable. They start at 9 am, and I pick them up about 2:30 pm.
The 4 days went well, with some boring lecture and activities in the morning, but an exciting trip out on the water all afternoon, which apparently made up for the morning session. The last day was a kayak adventure on the lake, which both boys enjoyed tremendously. They are now insisting we return and rent kayaks on the lake on our own, and soon!
