For the past couple of weeks, the monkeys have been at Grace St. Luke's for camp. Last week they did Art in Science in the morning and Superhero camp in the afternoon. Since they did several camps at GSL last year, they were very familiar with the set up and had no trouble fitting right in.
Of course their best buddies, Santi & Enrique were also in attendance.
Satchel was trilled to be reunited with his buddy, Max W., who he first met at Threshold Montessori school a million years ago.
(I didn't want to embarrass Satchel by asking Max to pose for a picture, but since this is the best I got, maybe I should have.)
As you can see, Beyblades were a big part of the play between camps and during breaks. However, they did do a lot of cool stuff, especially in science camp. They made their own snowglobes with glitter, made their own silly putty, tested the greasiness level of different potato chips, and a bunch of other things that I could list if either monkey were in earshot.
This week was all day sports camp, which they both really love, especially on field trip days. Monday they went skating, Wednesday they went to Putt Putt, and today they went bowling. They also played tons and tons of games in the gym--dodgeball, hockey, you name it.
Here's a pathetic shot of Jiro playing some sort of bowling related game.
One noteworthy thing this week was that Jiro, Santi, and Enrique buddied up with a GIRL. A girl! Ella seems to be a very nice girl, maybe a bit of a tomboy.
Satchel missed two days of camp--one for a hurt tailbone and one for feeling nauseous. The jury is still out on whether or not, or how much, he was faking, but I think Jiro liked having GSL to himself for a couple of days. He asked me to not sign him and Satchel up for the same exact camps next year. Awww. I'm fine with that even though it already requires a spreadsheet to keep up with their summer schedules! (Ok, a really basic spreadsheet.)
I have a few more shots that I'll file under "brothers from another mother." Having the kids in camp with close friends certainly helped all four of us parents with pick ups and drop offs when things got hectic.
And last week, Santi turned seven which meant a big sleepover and trip to Skyzone.
Everybody loves Santi.
Next week is Rhodes Soccer. Woot!
