So Arthur went away for the week with school. For real. Arthur, who is 7, went with his class to Nature's Classroom in Lake Geneva Wisconsin. 4 nights in dorm style houses. They did all sorts of outdoor activities and selected various classes to take. They also learned a lot about being independent. Dining had a whole procedure to it. Each student took a turn being Waitron where that person would kind of be in control of the table. They lived out of their suitcases and did lots of things for themselves. Very cool.
Unfortunately, Gridley came down with Pink Eye. And apparently transferred it to Arthur during going away hugs. So she spent some time during the week with eye drops, and then I got a call on Thursday to pick up Arthur early from Natures Classroom because his eye was swollen. It was actually pretty bad when i got there! But I took him to a clinic and got him some drops and things are looking better. Too bad he had to cut short his adventure. He seemed to be having a great time.
Also, Krista came down with pink eye. I started to, but jump on the eye drop train and seem to have held it off.
We went to a very cold polar adventure down by the lake with some friends. Gridley got some facepaint.
So did Arthur
Here is arthur getting his bobcat badge with his cub scout den. Pretty cool. we had dinner with the troop and learned more about cub scouts.
Here is a blanket Gridley made for arthur's Dolphin. Good stitching right?
Arthur put his Construx set together. He got it for christmas, but it was kind of complicated and sat around for a while. we finally hunkered down and tackled it last weekend. It took a few hours to get the whole thing built. in the end it was some kind of slingshot roller coaster. pretty cool.
