Although managing a new camp every week is challenging, the silver lining is that the kids get to do and learn some neat things. The first week they went to zoo camp and learned about lots of animals. I like for them to do 1 camp in the summer where they don't know anyone and have to make friends. This was the one and they did great. They were exhausted by Friday and passed out on the way home.
Last week the kids went to music camp. Ms. Kristi, our guitar teacher and Ms. Anne who teaches piano put this camp together. It was in our neighborhood with all neighborhood kids. The kids LOVED it! On Thursday they had a recital and I had so much fun watching the kids who had been taking lessons for awhile and the kids who were rookies. Ms. Anne asked Matt to play this piece last minute because she liked it...and I did too!
Marlie worked on the guitar some but focused on voice lessons. For the recital she sang part of a song from The Little Mermaid. It was less dramatic than she usually sings at home! She absolutely LOVED singing in front of a crowd! Too funny!
Marlie's birthday was June 11th. The kids had the option of having a birthday party or going to San Diego this summer so they chose the latter. So for Marlie's birthday we went to dinner at her choice, Chick-Fil-A and then to Tutti Frutti. She got to take 2 friends along. It was one of the best birthdays ever. The girls had a blast! Here's their performance after a cup of froyo...
These girls are too stinkin cute!
And he's been dying to see the Angels because he loves Mike Trout. He wears #27 in baseball because of him. A few months ago Matt got out the Astros schedule and figured out when the Angels were in town. He's been saving his money ever since so Dad bought tickets. We have been so busy with baseball so Marlie and I decided to stay home so she could have her first sleepover. The boys invited Big Matt and Logan to go with them and they had the time of their lives. Not only did each of the boys get a ball from the Angels pitcher, but just before the game Mike Trout (yes don't freak out) came to the side and signed both of the boys baseballs! I'm not sure if the boys or the Dads were more excited. Then the boys were also on the big screen at the game for the Squeeze Play. What I loved most is that the boys didn't get home until after midnight...Matt turns on the light in my bedroom and jumps on the bed and tells me the whole story. Then Doug tells it again because he's so excited too. I'm so glad we all had a great night!
