Both kids went to summer school this year. Scooter went to Marymount again, but I think it was more fun for him than in the past, because in addition to the usual math and language arts classes we make him take, he took ceramics and cooking. So he got to make stuff to bring home and stuff to eat. We decided to try the GATE program for Fluffy. It was a really neat idea; the kids created a city, board games, art, etc., by reusing recycled things. I wish all kids could go to a program like that. Not only smart kids can/should benefit by being inspired to be creative. (I just found this great show in PBS called Design Squad. Check it out!)
This week, Fluffy is at Camp Round Meadow. It's her first residence camp. I hope she's having fun. Thea went with her, and we saw a lot of familiar faces from school and Indian Guides at orientation so she shouldn't feel alone. I've been mailing her all kinds of notes and postcards everyday. Like Scooter's first (and only) Round Meadow trip, I made some silly postcards using photos I took. I hope she likes them.
I have to drive up to Big Bear on Thursday to pick her up since camp ends on Saturday, but we need to drive to Las Vegas on Friday for a basketball tournament. Oh boy, I get to make a six-hour round trip on Thursday, and another long drive on Friday.
