Last weekend we went on our first camping trip in Georgette. This weekend we’ll head out on camping trip number two and next week, Lili will head out on her first week-long day camp trip.
I’m a little envious and somewhat nervous about her venturing out on this camping adventure. She is going to Art and Science in the Woods, hosted by the Sun Foundation. She will spend the week on her major, “All About Birds” and each afternoon she will learn something different from Native American art and culture to drawing and sculpting. It really is the perfect fit for her. Being out in nature while learning art and science, but it’s also the first time she is spending hours each day for five days out learning and exploring without me.
She won’t be totally amongst strangers since 5 other kids from our homeschool group will be there. One will be with her each day learning about birds and am quite sure she will leave camp having made several new friends along the way.
She’ll have a great time while I spend the week playing chauffeur and hearing all she has learned each day.
On Friday though, we will head out to pick her up, but this time we get to stick around to see what the kids have done all week. It’s an opportunity for all of us to learn and experience a little Art and Science in the Woods.
Here’s to great camping experiences for all of us over the next 8 days.
