Last week Rylie did a special creative arts camp Monday through Thursday. It was a LOT of driving for us as the camp's 30 minutes away. So dropping off and picking up was 2 hours. Thankfully the camp was 9am-3pm and 2 of those days a friend brought her home so Remy could get a good nap. Rylie had to bring her lunch each day.
And then Remster and I hung out while sister was painting and learning more sign language!
I stopped to get coffee one morning after drop off and there wasn't a drive thru at any location nearby so we had to go in and Remy was begging for a "little coffee" (milk in a small coffee cup) to be just like Mommy! She was beaming with her little cup so proud of herself.
Thursday night was showcase night where all the camp participants perform all they learned. I tried getting a group shot with my cell phone.
Here's video of Rylie's songs and sign language.
Afterwards, they had artwork showcased in the halls. She already brought home her canvas painting and she isn't happy with it so she wouldn't let me take pictures or post. She had a plaster of paris she'd made and painted on display.
They had to lay on their backs and draw on paper taped to the bottom of chairs like Michaelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Then they turned it into this sculpture.
Friday we had a really fun family day that I'll go more in detail tomorrow.
Saturday morning I helped chaperone some youth from our church to see Jurassic World!
All the chaperones
The only 2 ladies there! It was a great movie! And pretty awesome in 3D!
That afternoon I caught Remy putting her baby doll on the counter, get real close to her face and say in a serious voice, "Ok Carol, last chance. This is going to be the best summer ever."
lol No clue where that came from!
We went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner and this was Rylie's fortune after.
Couldn't have been more perfect for her! And she even exclaimed when she read it "This is so perfect for me! Mommy, look!" Going to have to save this for when she gets published. Ha!
