Summer Camps

This summer Maddy spread her wings a little more than previous summers and tried a few of the summer camp programs put on by our local high school. 

First up -- theater camp -- who knew my quiet girl could sing and dance too?  She had so much fun! For her age-group's performance, they sang and danced a bit to Mary Poppins and Beauty and the Beast songs -- "Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a  match, catch me a catch . . . "

Next -- cheer camp!   She had a couple friends at this camp along with 165 other girls!  Wow -- that's a lot of girl power in one place.  All of the girls did a great job on their final day performance.



And then it was on to dance/cheer camp.  She was worried -- she didn't know anyone there at all.  But she still had a lot of fun and learned a ton in only 3 mornings!
One day she, said, "wow, the dancers [teachers]really shake their booty"!  Funny!

So proud of her that she tried new things this summer and really enjoyed all three. 

 Both the cheer and dance/cheer groups will perform at the first football game of the season. 
So exciting for my little fourth grader!

I am always so excited when kids try something new, especially when it is outside of their comfort zone. Great job on the summer camps!

It is so good that she enjoys doing new things. I am working on Olivia playing softball, she is so scared of the coach. Blessings-Joy

I think it is great that she stepped out of her comfort zone to try some new things. I can't wait to hear about her fall performances.
