    Fall Break

    This week is Fall Break for 2 of my 3 kids. Because of the differences in their school schedules, we can’t travel this year. We’ve decided to take a few in-town field trips and spend our days working on some fun fall activities. This week we are going to skip the educational component that is usually included in camp weeks. While I love the opportunity to teach the kids new things, because school has been in session for several weeks, they could use the break and are really are not in the mood to learn. Highlights for this week include Creating Floating Cheese Cloth Ghost Going Apple Picking Taking a…

    Entrepreneur Camp

    With the exception of 2020, every summer, the kids start a summer business. This week we will work on developing an idea, building a stand, marketing, and selling their product during Entrepreneur Camp. In the past, Jackson has run “Pop of Jacks,” a popsicle stand that usually brings in roughly $75-$100 every day he goes out. From an early age, he learned how to use his charm and a few signature popsicle recipes to rake in sales, donations and create repeat customers. Due to probable concerns over the safety of homemade products, we will use those skills to launch a new business run by Jackson & Ansley. David and I…

    Camp Splash

    In the summer, water makes everything fun. Camp Splash is all about getting wet. We are looking forward to bringing out some of our favorite water toys, playing games, and having a blast. Because we did not finish making our short film during movie-making camp last week, we will spend our indoor time filming and editing. However, indoor time could also be spent watching some of your favorite summertime movies or playing classic board games that remind you of your own childhood summers. Plans for the week include a wide age range of activities, including: Slip N Slide Kickball Water baseball Running through our human carwash Making some fun 4th…

    Movie Making Camp

    This week is film week for Jackson. He is co-starring in a short film this weekend which means our days will be interrupted by Covid tests, fittings, production meetings, and everything else required to get ready to be on set. We decided to mirror the movie-making process in our downtime this week and host Movie Making Camp of our own. Each day will focus on a different aspect of the filmmaking process. While we are still deciding whether to use a script the kids drafted last year or to draft a new one, we will spend the other days shooting, editing, and having an outdoor screening of the movie when…

    Summer Fun

    Summer break is here. This summer is quite different for us than the last. While we are still exercising caution, we are slowly reintroducing ourselves back into the world. Our weeks will be a mix of at home activities and one weekly field trip where we will take as many safety precautions as possible while still having fun. The plan for the week is simply to have fun.
