Yertle The Turtle

We had a completely full schedule of summer camps this year! As hectic as it was keeping up with dates, times, and driving schedules.. the kids loved it and it was a blast!! Ethan took part in a Dulin’s baseball camp and a lacrosse camp. He loved both! I think we’ve officially given up on soccer, but lacrosse and baseball seem to be sticking! (which I love!!) We’re going to give football a try this fall.. flag football here we come!

Lilly Kate did art camp again this year, completing two paintings! She always enjoys doing that! She also decided to do a camp at Theater Memphis. We’ve never done this camp before so I wasn’t sure how it was going to be. I couldn’t have been more pleased with it though. Every single day, LK was eager to go back! At the end of the week, they performed a play for the families. It was precious!! This year, they performed two plays.. The Sneetches for the younger group and Yertle The Turtle for the older group. You can never go wrong with a Dr. Seuss choice! Here are some pics…

They all did a WONDERFUL job!!! All the girls did a great job learning their lines and dances! We will definitely be doing this camp again in the years to come. Ethan has even asked to do it next summer!
