The Amazing Bubble Truck was at the library for the Summer Reading Program “Make a Splash Read” kick off event. And what a kick off. Bubbles, kids even adults all in the parking lot having a great time.
JEM had a knack for making huge bubbles. She will even be in the Reporter Times our local newspaper because she kept producing such large interesting bubbles.
She said the trick was to go slow as you pull the strings out of the bubble solution and not to open them too fast, then just let the wind or body movement blow through making the bubble.
After she explained it to the other kids, everyone got the hang of it. They had so much fun making all kinds of interesting bubbles. Even MJ (below) who is only 3, had a few good ones.
AL had the best large bubbles in my opinion. As I was taking a picture they grew and popped all over me.
I got so many wonderful pictures.
The Morgan County public library here in Martinsville, Indiana offers our youth great summer reading programs every year to encourage them to continue reading during summer break.
This years theme is Make a Splash-Read! The kids receive a reading contract that they fill out stating the number of books or minutes they plan to read this summer. Then at the end of the summer during the end of summer reading party they will receive prizes for meeting their goals. [Read more…]
JEM, MCD, and DCD were off to 4h Camp Shakamak.
They will have lots of fun doing camp things like:
This is there first time to 4h camp and JEM’s first time to any camp. I have never been away from her for more than a day and I was freaking out. Nervous that I didn’t send her with everything she needed.
But I can’t wait for my JEM to get back.
Remember playing barbies? I loved turning the house into different areas of barbie land. The store, hair salon, school, post office, vet, doctor, you name it, we had it. Barbie was a busy woman.
The house would be covered in bodies, clothes, hairbrushes, and shoes (which NEVER stayed on).
How old were you when you gave them up? I was 12. I still played with my niece at 13 and 14.
Having daughters is wonderful. I get to be a kid again. I couldn’t wait to get the barbies out.
Sorry for so many words. This is my first Wordless Wednesday
Mother’s Day was wonderful. Cathy and I, with our families went to Brown County State Park. Our original plan for the day was to work on our garden at her house because we have had a difficult time fitting it into our crazy schedules. So we were going to work on mother’s day.
