**Days 168 & 169**

Our girls were at day camp all week - Arts & Science in the Woods.  It is one of the coolest camps ever!  Around 500 kids attend camp every day for one week, Monday - Friday, from 9am - 3pm.  They pick one major class, and four minor classes to take throughout the week.  They attend their major classes everyday from 9am - noon, and then they do their minor classes in the afternoon.  The kids choose from more than 60 areas of interest, and the teachers are wonderful!  Some teachers come from places as far away as California, and even India to teach classes (the camp in located in Illinois).  And what's really cool is that the whole camp (and all the classes) take place outside in the woods!!  Anyway, our daughter, Brenna, chose Recycled Rhythms for her major.  Each child made their own drum out of recycled items, and then spent the week practicing for Friday performances.  Our daughter, Aubree, chose Clay Creations for her major.  She spent the week making lots of great clay art.  Both my girls LOVED all of their classes.  Last night was Family Night at the camp, so we were able to walk around the camp to see what our girls did all week, and we watched our daughter Brenna perform in the drum show with her class.  After Family Night we went to a friend's house, and we didn't get home until late, so I didn't get a chance to do a blog post yesterday.  Here are some pics from the camp (click on collage to enlarge):

I didn't get any exercise in yesterday, but today I ran 1 mile, walked 1 mile, and did the 30 Day Shred.

On Monday I'm going to start one week of "Fat Confessions" - every day I will confess one thing about my life as a fat person.  Tune in!
