BYEC: Scenes from Day 1

Today began our 2nd not-quite-annual Back Yard Explorers Camp! Six teenagers are helping me run it this time... which I love soooo much more than trying to do it on my own. :) Over thirty kids came, so the yard was abuzz. (Should that be hyphenated?)

The activities today included songs, games, an obstacle course, crafts, and a little learning about cloud types. Tomorrow's theme: trees!

Here they are in action:

It was VERY hot.... so this kind of thing was perfect:
Looking forward to the rest of the week!
