Camp Invention

Every summer, Tiffany and I sign the boys up fun camps to fill up their summers. Last year they went to a rocket camp and learned about space. They built rockets and got to launch them on the last day. Last February, Tiffany had a brilliant plan. We signed Trevor and Ry up for Inventor's camp. They just had it this past week. They had to bring a broken machine and take it apart and build something else. For me, the best part was that it was from 9-3:30 everyday. I am sure that Ryan would say the best part was inventing a machine that pops water balloons.
Ry was paired with a boy named Alec. They got along great. Their machine popped water balloons by dropping it onto a sharp object. It was a great idea and it worked pretty well. On the last day, they had a show case to show the parents all that the kiddos were up to all week. It was amazing. They were so busy. They were learning and having fun. No video games were involved. Ry and Trevor want to do it again next summer. I think Emily will sign up too.
