Rian and the Worm

For those of you who were hoping to see the video of Rian and her worm Kayla I apologize that it is no longer posted here. Gary and I sent the video to America's Funniest Videos (AFV) and one of the requirements per the agreement we signed with them was to remove the video from our blog. I am happy to report however that Rian is no longer traumatized by returning rescued worms to their natural habitat. She is actually the best worm saver on our block and I bet if worms could talk they would be cheering her on for all of her heroic worm rescues this spring (post rain storms!). Her trained eye can spot a wiggling worm a block away!! We will keep you posted on her infamous video and if we hear that it will be aired on AFV.

Go Fish Felt Fishing Game

As a member of the Etsy community I've had a great time meeting other creators and getting their input on the items offered in my shop. Recently I was approached by a super sweet homeschooling momma who was interested in my Go Fish Felt Fishing Game. After sending her a sample and allowing her youngsters to play with this fun toy she wrote a review about it on her blog. You can check it out here. These felt fishing games can be found in my etsy shop Sapucha on Etsy.

Mom & Me Camp 2011

The girls and I just returned from a great weekend at Camp Newaygo where we participated in the Mommy & Me weekend camp program. My cousin Meg O'Brien and her daughter Claire joined us for the second year. Meg and Claire drove to Grand Rapids on Friday to spend the night and then on Saturday morning we packed up and headed to camp! The "excitement meter" was OFF THE CHARTS and the girls were ready to get to camp. Our weekend was packed with so many activities - tye dying, rock climbing, archery, swimming, water wonder (study of the lake), canoe trip, GaGa Court (hand ball type of game), shelter building, scavenger hunt, bonfire, cookout, hiking, nature trail exploration, zoo school, fencing, singing camp songs...WOW I think I covered most of the activities but I'm sure there were more that I left out. Anyway I think you get the picture and can see that we were busy and having a ton of fun! Here are some pictures and short videos highlighting our experiences:
