Knife Throwing

Lu and Cha made throwing knives from old saw blades
with a jigsaw and a grinder, then learned how to throw them.



And...

Soap-making!



Since both Cha and I host interns and volunteers, there is no end to the very cool things Lu ends up learning when he hangs out with these very savvy college students who live and work with us. The other day, he learned how to make soap with them, and made this big, wonderful-smelling batch for us.
