The big kids get to go to camp once a week for the whole summer this year. It gets them out of the house with their peers, away from the (dare I say) boredom of summertime with Mom and the little girls. At camp they get a swimming lesson and usually a field trip somewhere they’d normally not get to go. I purposefully chose the days to send them based on the field trips offered (the aquarium instead of a local farm, for instance). Today’s activity, however, was held on site. A caricature artist came to camp and drew pictures of the kids. I thought this would be fun for them as well as for Ray and I — what great keepsakes for all of us!
These are the masterpieces. Interestingly, though not surprisingly, Mitzi, our budding artist, came home and starting drawing caricatures in her journal, big-headed people doing different things, like riding horses or playing soccer or just looking fancy. If you’d like one of yourself, just let us know. Her fees are reasonable!
