We made it home from Sunriver only to have to turn around and send off #1 to her first overnight camp! It’s over night for TWO weeks! 😯 Okay, it is literally three blocks from our house… 🙂 It was very weird to drive over (No one wanted to carry her luggage the whole three blocks! Sheesh!) and drop her off. When I went to sleep away camp as a kid we always had to drive a few hours to get there and we were all exhausted when I got dropped off. This was very different. Everyone was in high spirits and she was so excited! I am sure she will have a great time. She was pushing us out the door as we left… but it is certainly going to be quiet around here!
This week it was basketball camp at the arena. It was pretty cool… They got to play in the arena and hang out with many of the women’s basketball players. Of course my child sported the mismatched skull socks!
It was another camp at the art museum. It was off to a rocky start but then everyone made friends and fun was had by all. Not to mention we walked over and got frozen yogurt after camp each day… I know… my girls got it rough! These pics were from the final day where the kids get to show off all their hard work for the week. #2 says the water dragon was her favorite piece.
Today the girls are off to camp where they get to cook pizza in a restaurant kitchen. They are very excited! It just happens to also be in the building where they went to preschool so I was feeling quite nostalgic as I dropped them off. I remember them being little (as they are in the photo) and racing down the halls… sigh… They were also recalling lots of memories which was very cute. As we say in our house – savor every sandwich! Time just flies! Okay, enough sappiness, off to a day of fun with my dude. I think we are going to breakfast and an early movie. Enjoy your Monday. 🙂
So it is spring break this week and my girls are once again in art camp. Happily, they love it. We lucked out and got to ride over to camp on our bikes this morning but the rain has arrived and we were not able to ride home… What can I say, I love to bike, just not in the rain! I spent the day on dots and should have lots of goodies tomorrow… 🙂
So after spending a day making stuff out of clay, we had to go spend over an hour painting it all! Whew… 😀 I was quite surprised at how well all the pieces fired, I thought for sure some of them would end up exploding in the kiln from air bubble, but happily that did not happen.
Yet again this year art camp was a big success! Perhaps the only negative was that my youngest was just too grumpy when she saw all the art that she missed out on. 😀 Happily enough, next year she will be able to go! The show was great, the artists were of course all so talented, and I loved seeing how proud they were of their creations!
The art camp was a success! Since this was the last day of camp they had an art show to share all that they made this week with the parents. It was pretty cute to see the kids standing by their creations, they were busy little campers! My oldest was of course proud of her works of art, they did paper mache, abstract painting, collages… the list goes on and on… 😀 Can you tell that I was a proud mom too! Heehee…
P.S.- Happy Birthday to my BLOG! It has been a year… can you believe it?! 😀 Lets hope I have many more. Thanks SOOO much to everyone who stops to visit… You rule!
My oldest is going to an art camp held at the University of Oregon for spring break. It is kind of weird walking on a college campus each day… I realize it is a good thing that coffee wasn’t so big when I was in school or I would have been broke all the time!! There is a Starbucks on campus and so we seem to stop when I drop her off and eek… when I get her too… Usually I’m very good about not indulging in coffee, generally because I’m in too much of a hurry to wait in line, but when I only have to walk five feet it is kind of hard to resist. Anyway, it is spring break afterall and I’m nowhere spring-y… heehee… apparently I’m just having a java holiday! 🙂
Oh yeah… I got all the goodies out in the mail and I updated my gallery in case you wanna see all that I listed yesterday. 😀
