My daughters are currently on summer break. I am planning to do one, fun activity with them every day of their summer break. I will be documenting our various projects together and sharing them here every week and possibly more detailed projects within the week. This is our fourth summer doing this.

On days 38 - 44, our girls went to VBX (formerly "VBS." The "X" stands for "experience"). My girls enjoyed singing songs, listening to stories, watching skits, playing indoor and outdoor games, doing arts and crafts, and spending time with friends. My mom still took my girls to the library on Tuesday for the weekly library program. They watched a magic show this week. On Saturday, we went on a moonlit hike at Devil's Punchbowl Natural Area. This was the first time we went hiking at night. It was a fun experience. Some portions of the hike were challenging. My girls slipped a couple of times and some parts were steep. Addy broke out into an encouraging song that she learned at VBX as she was climbing a steep incline: "I know that I can make it..." It was funny. :) (P.S. Going on a moonlit hike was on my summer manifesto).
