The girls started the summer with an all-girl skate camp. It was led by female professional skaters and it was just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
It’s cute because you can’t hear it. Karis was in the choir. The older kids also did a basketball camp at our YMCA. I was a little reluctant to sign India up because her first foray in basketball did not go so well. But since she has adopted her new “tomboy” persona, she’s up for all kinds of new experiences. I was so proud of her positive spirit the whole week. The kids also went to our church’s VBS. I was slightly tempted to sign the kids up for all of the VBS’s in the greater Orange County area, but alas, my integrity won out. And by integrity, I mean the fact that most of them were scheduled for the same week. Gotta love crazy hair day. The bigger kids did a “rock star camp” (wrote about that one here.) I got a Groupon for two weeks of rock-climbing camp for the boys, which they really enjoyed. (This was a posted shot – they don’t usually climb without a harness. Or their shoes tied.)
While the boys were perfecting their climbing skills, the girls did a cheerleading camp put on by the cheerleaders at our local high school. Karis was the youngest at the camp so she got a lot of attention. While the sporadic camp schedule was a little (a lot) hectic, it was fun to see them learning new things and cultivating new interests. If you are a working mom, what did you did with your kids this summer? How did it work out?
