Greetings! I just joined the community as part of my search for more activities that my daughter and I can do together. We currently live in Woodinville in that little corner on the map where Woodinville-Duvall Rd and Avondale meet. We've spent most of our time in Seattle (especially since we both go to school in the city), but this summer I won't be working and my daughter doesn't need to go to summer camp, so I'm looking for things to do together. This seems a rather difficult since most of the activities we're interested in are usually either for adults or children and not both. We're looking for resources specifically for:
Beginning ASL (American Sign Language)
Knitting Group (a la Stitch 'n' Bitch)
And possibly beginning Mandarin (my daughter loves everything to do with China)
If you happen to know of language tutors or yoga/knitting groups in or around Redmond and Woodinville we could access easily by bus, I would love to hear from you.
I know it's early to be planning for the summer, but I usually don't plan for it until it's too late, and I don't want to spent our time exclusively playing video games.
On an aside, I do have a small budget to work with and can also provide services in trade: I'm a writer, editor, and Reiki Master for those who are interested.
