We used to do the Lowe’s Build & Grow workshops with Connor when we lived in Tennessee, and I really missed it during our time overseas. If you don’t know about it, it’s awesome!

They also get a patch for each project completed! In September, we built binoculars and fire trucks. And did I mention it’s FREE?!? You can sign up at http://lowesbuildandgrow.com/!
