We are in the fifth full week of summer and about to start Camp LuthinLighter and swimming lessons. Sheesh. So much has gone on around here and I want to remember it all.
The second full week of summer found Little and Bubba attending Variety Adventure Camp. Variety is a children’s charity that provides equipment for children with special needs – for example, shoe inserts for our Little. Each camper has their own counselor and there is swimming, ice skating, karate, cooking, and more. I am so thankful for these special kids to get a camp experience and this year there was the added bonus of Bubba’s counselor being a graduate of KDS (the school Bubba will be attending this Fall). I was concerned about how Bubba would handle the news that he was switching schools, but one week of “Corey had Mrs. Hickle” and I knew all would be well. (KB and I had many adventures together during the week AND a couple “play dates”!!)
Week Three allowed for competitive app playing with Bubba at home while Little and KB attended camps. Little attended dance camp at a nearby Christian high school. Her teacher from Promise is the coach of the dance team and they invited the girls from Promise to be a part of the camp. Little had a ball and did supprisingly well for a gal who “can’t” coordinate the right and left sides of her body!!
KB attended a camp through the Center for Creative Arts (COCA) called “More Than A Box”. She must have had a great time because she came home covered in paint each day. Here’s the description of the camp: “Age: 4 – 5. Boats…cities…castles…spaceships! There is nothing you can’t make from a giant cardboard box, a lot of cool art materials and your imagination. Discover the possibilities in this really imaginative visual arts camp.” Doesn’t that sound super fun? She says it was!
