July 2010
(Click on images to enlarge)

Things I did this month:
Summer camp... summer camp... summer camp...!
Children's Adventure Company, Chess Camp, Big Sky Build It Racers and Trucks Camp
I have a radio in my room and now I can stay up and dance all night long
I have been to so many camps that everywhere I go in Santa Fe (and even ABQ), I have friends!
Mommy and I went camping at Lake Heron!

Random Conversations:
Ari (while playing Chess): Mommy, should I move my pond (i.e. pawn)

Ari (while going to bed): Don't let the bad bugs bite


Our garden:
Eggplant, zucchini, acorn squash, heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, corn, bell peppers, cucumbers, jalapenos, strawberries, raspberries

Our pretty yard

USA Chess camp with Sam and Avi

Messing around with Sam after camp

Drumming and lemonade and cookie stand
I made $20 ;-)

Chess club at Border's bookstore with Sebastian, Jacob, and Jessica

Snail hunting at St. John's College


Whew, we made it!
And after only driving around lost for an hour... oh Mommy ;-)

The front of our campsite

Burgers, baked beans, and a walk around the lake skipping rocks

Boating (and fishing... badly)

It was monsoon season, but we played chess while it rained

I made a canon while Mommy cooked dinner
Just put a rock on one end, drop this big log on the other, and... WATCH OUT!

Bell peppers from our garden stuffed with rice and sausage... yummy!
And marshmallows of course!


We rowed out to the island (well mostly Mommy rowed while I entertained her)

Mommy and I had an awesome camping trip ;-)
