Fourth of July at Uncle Doug and Aunt Barb's house has been a tradition for several years. Before that, we had decades of Fourths at my grandma's. Marshmallow topped brownies, balloon toss, cooking out.
All summer, we've been attending the summer reading programs at the library. This one was really wonderful, engaging all the children completely.
Hanging out downtown at the first (annual?) Cirque Carnival
Ryan is finishing up a clay class - they are creating an under-the-sea scene.
Ryan attended Bulldog Basketball Camp and had the best time. They were long, hot days and he wanted to be there every minute. He says it's more fun than swimming or soccer. I'm thinking, wait until he can get the ball into the net - how fun will it be then?
4-H Camp Clifton - Jeremiah's first week away from home. He did the high ropes course, a zip line at night, and a few activities that he described as "do it yourself..." They weren't terribly prepared. Think ice cream eating contest with no bowls, spoons or cones. Just kids and a tub of ice cream.
