Sunshine and Science

Liauids, Solids, and Other Messy Materials is going well at ScienceWorks this week. Dane and Aubrey are attending camp with 18 other 7-10 year-olds, doing projects like "Frankenstein's Hand," "Turning Milk Into Stone," and "Watercolor Holding the Brush in Your Mouth," and having loads of messy fun.

They're having a blast, but that didn't stop Dane from skipping Wednesday's class to go with my friend Jennie and her kids for a swim. (You can do that when your mom's the instructor and camp is free!) Dane swam his heart out and caught frogs from a pond with Dominic and Rees. Jennie says there was some serious boy joy there.

The day before, Dane and Aubrey had gone home from camp with their friends Ruby and Chad for a couple hours of swimming. And tonight, Aubrey's pal Sienna is spending the night: so far the girls and Dane have made fortresses for stuffed animals and cross dressed.

Who could ask for anything more from summer?

You guys are having SO MUCH FUN this summer! Yay! And so glad you have that adorable picture up!

Happy last day of camp tomorrow. Maybe you can share some Reynolds fun with us this weekend?

WOW, your week has passed with loads of fun with a few challenges intermixed. Way to go, Anjie!!!
Glad D & A are getting in some swimming. Our weather report has had Medford in the mid 90's - that's definitely pool time. That Church street pool was really well used - kind've miss it.
Love to you all,
