friday morning catch ups. (summer vacations & camps)
^^How I am feeling today!^^
/1/ Oh happy day. I have been counting down to this day forever - the last day of camp. It's finally here! Here is a summary of our summer 2018:
Week 1: Jr. ROCS (both)
Week 2: Camp Mama
Week 3: Camp Mama
Week 4: Chess (both)
Week 5: Jr. ROCS (both)
Week 6: CANCUN!!
Week 7: Science in Motion (both)
Week 8: Moving N Grooving (both)
Week 9: Gymnastic and Dance (Anna), Jr. ROCS (Will)
Week 10: MYRTLE BEACH!!
So, in total, the kids attended 6 weeks of summer camp. This year I still kept both kids in the same camps except for one week, but next year, I am putting them in camps based on their own individual interests. For Will, it will be chess and soccer, and for Anna it will be anything artsy. I also want to put them in some kind of academic camp, so they can either 1) get ahead, or 2) not fall behind. All this to say: I need to do a better job of picking camps that are actually beneficial to the kids and not a waste of time. But YES, sooo glad that summer camp is almost behind us...at exactly 4pm today!
/2/ I need to write about our Week 6 soon. Our big family trip this year was to Cancun Mexico :) We went with my side of the family, stayed at an all-inclusive resort and did nothing for 6 days except swimming, eating and relaxing. I will also write about my thoughts on an AI vacation when I do a detail post...right after we get back from Week 10.
/3/ Right at this moment, it is the Friday of Week 9 and tomorrow we leave for Myrtle Beach! It will be our last carefree summer days before school starts. We are only staying 4 nights, but that's perfect because we will come back in time for the school Open House. Anyway, I can't wait for MB! The first and last time we were there was over 5 years ago and I am looking forward to walk around Broadway at the Beach again!
