The End of Summer Camp

Summer Camp has come to an end. :( I can say that I COMPLETELY enjoyed my summer. Going to the Whitecaps, taking a trip down on The Grand Lady (riverboat), sleeping over at the center and swimming at Whistle Stop are only a few trips that we went on this summer. Now it's time to begin my next journey, working in the office and with the School Agers after school. :) I am very excited!! :)

Wii Fit 8-31-08

Greg and I have been trying to do the Wii Fit. Even though this is only our second night, we hope to get into a routine (atleast I do). For those of you whom have never played Wii Fit, it's a video game that goes with the Wii Game system. While standing on a raised electronic step, you have to perform activities in different categories. From balancing on a tight rope, to catching hula hoops, it's very easy to raise your heart rate while working on your balance. Greg enjoys playing table tilt, ski jump and running. I enjoy advanced step, hula hoop and table tilt.

Stay tune for more updates on Wii Fit Physical Improvements!!

BTW: Nate and Zach enjoy the soccer game. The player has to bounce soccer balls off from his/her head whithout getting hit by a panda bear or shoe.

Fun Final Weekend of Summer

We thought we would enjoy our final weekend of summer by celebrating NATHANIEL'S 7th Birthday!! On Friday, Nate and I "woke" up at CLC from our Summer Camp sleepover. Then Nani, Papa Dutch, Grandma and Grandpa Sheller took Nate out for his birthday. For dinner, Nathaniel wanted to go to Logans, where they gave him a big "Yea, Ha". On Saturday, we went to Holland, MI and celebrated with Grandma, Uncle Jeff, Aunt Cindy, Uncle Brad, Aunt Meghan, Hayley, Jamie and Sydney. Finally on Sunday, we went to Chuck E. Cheese with Nani, Papa Dutch, Aunt Heather, Grandma and Grandpa Sheller. What a weekend. And to think it's not over yet. More fun to come Monday!! :)

Space Chimps

Due to a Meijer Garden rain out, today Ryan and I took the summer campers to see "Space Chimps." The movie has many comical moments with many play-on-words. According to the write-up on IMDb, "Ham III, the grandson of the first chimp astronaut, is blasted off into space by an opportunity-seeking senator. Soon, the fun-loving chimp has to get serious about the mission at hand: Rid a far-away planet of their nefarious leader. Fortunately for Ham III, two of his simian peers are along for the ride." The movie is 121 minutes long and has a fabulous soundtrack.

Zachary as of 8/22/08

This TallZachary turned 4 in June. He is very excited because he is just about to move up to the "Big Preschool" room. During the summer, Zach has enjoyed water days, creating crafts (especially kites) and Ice Cream Truck Day. Zach has been learning his ABC's and counting. In June, he weighed in at 42 lbs and was 40 inches tall.

Nathaniel as of 8/22/08

How Tall Am I?Nathaniel is 1 week away from being 7 years old. He is looking forward to starting second grade and Knapp Charter Academy. During the summer, Nathaniel has been going to the Creative Learning Center for "Summer Camp". He has enjoyed field trips, swimming and learning how to play new games. Last week, he went to Michigan's Adventure for the first time. He loved the wave pool and the pirate ship pool. Next week is the last week of summer camp. He is very excited because the over-night will take place "into" his birthday. Height and weight stats will be coming after his Sept. doctors appointment.
