Summer Summary Part 3:

Anna June's summer has been going very well, overall.

Last week, she attended another week of UAB Rec Camp.

Week 8: Science and Discovery Week

For this week, AJ and her camp friends learned various interesting facts and did some cool projects and experiments.

They made invisible ink with lemon juice. They made slime with household ingredients and food coloring. They designed plastic bag parachutes, which included various other materials like a plastic cup, and performed an egg drop from one story (the elevated indoor track) to another (the basketball court). AJ's egg did not crack! She was very excited.

There was a visitor who brought animals from the Birmingham Zoo (again) and a visitor from McWane who made elephant toothpaste.

There was also a dead bird on campus, which freaked AJ out a little. It was one more thing to discover.

Her swimming is coming along, well, swimmingly.

I don't think I got any pictures of her that week, but here is a picture of her playing cards and watching baseball with her dad (and Radar).

It's not all educational all the time at our house! Sometimes we play, too.

This sounds like stuff that I would enjoy doing.

Yes, I have no complaints about the programming at camp this year. AJ likes making things and was very excited about the egg drop, etc.
