I guess I never thought of this. I'm a parent of one of the kids, 2 others are a freinds kids. I guess we all know eachother well and they teach my kids in some of the projects and vice versa. If I did not know a child and family personally I guess I would ask their parents to get involved. Parents will be invited any way even if I do know them! Parental involvement is really big in our club and I would be more comfortable having their parents there learning also. I guess you do have to think of these things. I really appreciate all the advice and I have a list made out. I will add that parents are always welcome and encouraged to come along to the list! My daughter will always be there also. Thanks again. I have a couple of days off and plan on getting that darkroom finished finally! When you all see how small it is you'll wonder what took so long!
