Day 1,215: Marathon Day

Madison is a trooper and pushed through a physically demanding day. Camp has been an amazing experience so far but it’s been exhausting for her. Today’s camp skills included swimming, throwing skills, jumping skills, time outside and lots of camp games in the gym. Madison said the best part of the gym is when they all raced around the track. After camp Madison had an awesome swim lesson with Ryan. They focused on backstroke, floats with rolls, deep end swimming and kicking. After swimming Madison had a great workout with Melissa in the gym – she walked across all 12 treadmills sidestepping to avoid the lava on the floor lol.

Jack had his first morning camp today! The theme this week is sports. He went with his buddies and had a blast. After camp Jack took Rusty for a walk, played at the park and then met up with Madison at Variety Village. He went for a swim and then played baseball in the gym while Madison worked out.

Day 1,214:What a Day of Firsts!

Madison and Jack had an awesome day!

Today was Madison’s first day of sports camp at Variety Village. They started their day with swimming and then went to the gym and worked on balance skills with an obstacle course, played some camp games, worked on climbing and throwing skills and finished the day with free time outside. She loved it! It was a full day of fun – 7 hours of moving and grooving! She said the best part of camp this week is she gets to swim everyday and spend lots of time with her cousin and her friends.

Tonight was Jack’s first night of Sportball! It’s  a mix of soccer skills and t-ball skills at a park in our neighbourhood. Madison cheered him on! Jack loved it and did really well. Tonight they focused just on soccer so Jack was a little disappointed as he LOVES baseball! But he is really looking forward to going back next week.
