It was a really fun sleepover and the girls were very good hosts. I asked them if they were ready to spend the night at a friends house, Izzie said sure but Maddie said she wasn't quite ready just yet. We'll see!

Last summer I put the girls in a half day- day camp and they loved it so much they wanted to go a second week. But by that time all the spots were full. So this year I looked for two camps to put the girls in and I also figured they were old enough for all day. Which they were and they had a blast! Rewild Day Camp is a very relaxed go with the flow experience. It is guided learning and exploration. At the end of the day the girls just thought they were having fun and playing. The theme of the camp was Sand and Mud and they spent a lot of time playing on the beach of the river getting muddy and building sand castles. They also worked with clay and made mud "tattoos." (Izzie/Maddie)
Day five called for rain and it poured at home, but luckily they stayed mostly dry.

We really have enjoyed every homeschool day that we do with Rewild. The girls enjoyed their daycamp with them too. It's a really awesome non-profit company dedicated to teaching conservation, earth skills and respecting all aspects of nature. If anyone is looking for fun "experience" gifts for the girls and I, gift cards toward Rewild would be awesome. Peter knows us so I'm sure he could work out a gift card thing. http://www.rewildportland.com/educational-programs/youth-programs/homeschool-family-program/
