Boot Camp Co-op
My wonderful husband led co-op this week so we had an especially fun time. He started in the house with a power point and some instruction on what happens during basic training. He went over all the insignia worn and the various ranks. He showed them how to salute, who to salute and when to salute, when they should wear their head cover and when not to, how to stand at attention and more. This lasted about an hour and the kids stayed engaged from start to finish. I was amazed!
One of the moms brought MRE's for lunch and all the kids had to try each item. That was an adventure of it's own. Some of the courses were better than they expected and the one part DH and I remember liking best turned out to be disgusting!
Finally to complete the day we all went back outside to run through an obstacle course. This time DH was supposed to yell in their faces like a drill sergeant but he just couldn't do it. He yelled but it all sounded more like shouts of encouragement to me. :)
