So, after a 25 minute warm up the huge group of 40 kids broke up into five smaller groups and then headed off to their designated stations. Mackenzie's first station was running the bases. They learned to run through first base and that they had to stay on the base at second. They ran around those bases for thirty minutes! They really seemed to love playing cat and mouse....a group of four kids (mice) would start at home and run the bases. When they got halfway between home and first the cat would start running and the cat would try to tag all the mice before they got to home plate.

We were lucky enough to get an awesome view of a USAF helicopter flying over the field to land over by Daddy's work. Garytt said this was the coolest moment of the day.
After practice we ran down to our park and had a good game of ball in the yard. We all ended up with a million bug bites, but had a LOT of fun!
Day three...Daddy was able to take a little time off work and watch. She was so excited! He got to watch her play a little game for about thirty minutes.
While she played Tuesday and Wednesday, Garytt put in a lot of scooter practice. He's getting pretty fast on that thing now....needs to get better at using the brake (and might need new shoes with more rubber on the toe and heel now).
Our final day was moved out to Briggs Bay ball fields because another group had reserved the other ball field a few weeks ago. Since I knew Garytt and I might have this huge field to ourselves, I packed up or sports bag with stuff for Garytt and I to do while Mackenzie played. First, we hit balls off the T. Then we practiced throwing the baseball. Then, we practiced throwing a football. I kicked the ball way up into the air for Garytt to chase down. We played soccer. We practiced kicking goals. Just a fun time for just the two of us! :)
Next week....Art camp. That will be our last week of camp until VBS in August.
