Wrapping up Summer
After our camping week, Emma started her summer of ESY (Extended School Year). Her program was 4 days a week from 9-12, so that still left time to have fun together.
Emma and Heidi were both able to attend Grammy Camp this Summer. My mom takes each of the grandkids individually for a few days and plans activities and field trips and general fun. This was Heidi's first time and she had a wonderful time! Part of both of their Grammy Camp experiences was gem mining. At the end of Emma's camp time, we all went up and did it together.
After the race, yummy brunch with a friend, and a shower, we drove back up to Dahlonega for their Independence Day parade. Grammy was in the parade! We were trying to teach Rachel to keep the flags off the ground.
Then we left the next morning to drive to Nashville for the US Boomerang Nationals. I didn't get many pictures, but it was INCREDIBLY hot while we were there. The kids had fun trying to stay cool and making new friends.
The girls are interacting with our cats more and more. The cats are still rather timid around Rachel & Heidi (they move too fast and are too loud), but they do occasionally oblige the girls' desires to "catch" them and pet them.
Watching the Olympics.
School has now started (next post) and Fall activities are getting in to full swing! Never a dull moment. But what fun would that be.
