Week 4, Day 3 – Camp Ling! Total regrouping
Gotta love…recovery. I think one of the best things about running a summer camp for my kids is that things can change at a moment's notice…and turned into the most awesome learning experiences imaginable.

Week 3, Day 3, Camp Ling – ALMOST a day off
You know, Camp Ling would be far more effective if I had 3 times the hours in the day! 🙂 Not that the kids are complaining; the days just seem to zoom by and they're kept busy. For example, yesterday HD2 and I reveled in flinging about the iron like so: Yes, that's set at […]

Week 3, Day 1 – Camp Ling! Arms day, pullup day, more
Today begins the 3rd week of Camp Ling! And it's going rather nice, I must say. The easiest part, of course, is the physical fitness and getting up at 6am and goodies like that! Honestly though, the hours just zoom by, so staying on track with academics is a bit challenging. Still, though, every little […]
