The last two weeks of August were spent giving two of my kids the opportunity to try some day camps - one for crafts and one for boy's choir.
My eldest was the first to raise her hand when I mentioned "craft camp" so she was the lucky one who got to attend with her friend. Now after seeing how much fun she had, all three want to go next summer, but I think the price per child will necessitate them taking turns.
The last day of camp they held an art show and puppet show so we got to see all the projects she kept secret during the week -
She made that felted necklace she's wearing and . . .
a woven pouch made on a loom
bottle cap creations (sorry it's blurry)
a pot holder
and a puppet for the puppet show.
The camp was held at the same hobby farm we have gone for bee/honey field trips. The owner (on the left) is an amazing woman of many talents.
My son tried out a boy's choir camp -
I am really excited that he is old enough to give this outstanding organization a try. Not only do they learn to sing from the director who studied (as an adult) with the instructors of the Vienna Boys' Choir, they also learn old fashioned manners and discipline. If he stays in long enough to make the top choir (of five) a trip to Europe will be in his future. We had better start saving now!
