If you live in the suburbs or if you have the opportunity to drive along country roads, I hope you take the time to enjoy the varieties of colors and species of wildflowers growing along the highways and byways.
Many of them are listed as invasive, but they tend to brighten up my travels from home to local destinations.

This has been a very good year so far; time is flying by.
On Monday we started off the week with a game of human pinball, one of the favorites at camp. Everyone battles to see who can stay in the game the longest.
Zach Y. was the winner of this game and he was very good at dodging the balls that were rolled at him from all different angles.
Every week we need to make sure to explain the camp rules and pool rules and any other expectations because there are new campers.
