Papa and Gigi Camp


We had a plan for our 2 days with the 7 Michigan Grandloves

 at Papa and Gigi Camp.

It took us two days to complete. Here is a bit of the story.

New big coloring books- Mandalorian and Paw Patrol

 and new crayons were a hit.

Playdough creations were super fun

 for the "older ones."

Our ages were- 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and 3 months.

Papa traced them on the driveway 

and then they tried to match the color of

their clothes with sidewalk chalk.

Creation Stations found great pairings with partners.

This wasn't on our plan but this little guy

 had only one place he wanted to be.

We made lots of silly faces.

We made some Thanksgiving tags for our garlands.

They gathered treasures on their Adventure Walk.

They loved putting together

 BIG floor puzzles.

Fort Cozy was the perfect spot to read books with Papa.

Always room for one more.

We spent lots of time snuggling this cutie.
We made a plan for the 2 days.

We started each day with a family meeting sharing
 the behaviors we were looking for that day.
We were watching and listening.
"Awards" by proclamation 
were given at the end of each day.

It was fun to hear them point out
 behavior notations for each other.
So how did we get to do camp?
Mom Jessica was presenting at an
 Educators's Conference and out of town. 
Mom Laura went back to work after her maternity leave
 and her childcare person was out of town.
Dad Joshua was prepping for his second game
 in the NAIA football playoffs and headed to Iowa.
Dad Daniel was working long hours as an athletic trainer
 at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
We were certainly blessed to spend
 this time with our 
Michigan grand loves.
