Camp Invention

This week Luke is going to Camp Invention with four of his friends. They've been doing inventive, creative, science project, games, etc. He loves it although it is quite an adjustment for him to be gone for "so long." (It's from 8:30 to 3:00.) Actually it is quite an adjustment for me too. It is very difficult to get up "so early" and Luke's room is getting to be a mess because after his long day he needs downtime then there's dinner and bed and somewhere in there I forget or feel I don't have the heart or the time to get him to do his chores. Since Luke is having a great time with his friends at camp, I've been coordinating fun outings and get togethers for the girls. Yesterday Isabel went swimming with a friend and today we went to the ten o'clock free movie. So for this week, any kind of school for me is off. In fact we are pretty much off until August or September except for reading, at least some math to stay sharp, and anything else we want to do. Today was invent your own hat day for camp. Here are some pictures.


Isabel wanted to make a hat even though she doesn't go to camp. Joey helped them make their hats. What a good dad.


Aden and Luke

Quick Sylvia Story: Lost her in Babies R Us and finally found a security guard with a confused look on his face staring into a display crib. Yep, there she was under the covers happily shouting, "GOODNIGHT!" I need to keep that kid leash in my purse at all times.

Also:  Safety Nerd learned how to ride his bike yesterday!  yay!
