What are you getting Dad for Father's Day? Kendall and Riley have been raking their brains trying to think of something other than the usual wallet or tie we get Ken every year.
Used to be we could get him some fishing gear too, but that's out now– with the limited mobility issue.
I've been thinking about a gift certificate to the Vermont Woodworking School in Cambridge VT. This is a very cool school and they offer all different types of courses and workshops– from beginner to advanced.
They even offer an immersion program where you can live at the Farm House or in a silo housing unit (see photo) while you learn the finer points of woodworking. Students take field trips to meet some of the world's best artisan furniture makers and see their studios.
What a gift for Dad, right? Getting him out of the house to do guy things on his own? And I think they may even take a field trip to near-by micro-breweries. What could be more better than wood and hops? And honestly, Dad's not likely to get into much trouble in rural Vermont.
