Colin and I took it easy yesterday for supper and went out for pizza. He brought one of his dinosaur encyclopedias and taught me a lot.
Colin passed all the requirements for his current swimming level including getting rings off the bottom of the pool and swimming across flippping from front to back 3 times. He’s proud of the accomplishment and excited for the next level.
Meanwhile we got a letter from Laura today listing her accomplishments from the past week including getting up on waterskis, going for her first trail ride on the horse, and hitting a bullseye at archery. I don’t know if she’ll ever want to come home!
It was a hot day today but Colin wanted to take his bike to the playground.
We’re making another Pokémon treat – this one is like a blueberry yogurt gelatin that will look like a monster called a Drifloon. It hadn’t quite set at supper time, so we’ll finish the decorating tomorrow.
Colin had a friend over for the evening. They wanted to make sure they played as many things as they could. Here they were playing with the kinetic rocks, in the middle of a board game at the same time.
Colin is spending 4 days this week at Adventure Camp with one of his best friends from school.
They get to learn golf, tennis, do crafts, play games, and most exciting… go swimming!
We dropped Laura off at camp yesterday – she’ll be there for three weeks! She was a bit anxious beforehand, but as soon as we arrived she was ready to get to it and for us to leave.
Laura went for a sleep over with a friend this week so Colin and I went to an indoor play area. They had a giant soccer ball. We enjoyed that for a long time.
Sarah is sharing a computer game from her youth with the kids.
