" Camp Katie Day "

Today we celebrated Camp Katie Day ! at our house.
My friend has 6.5 year old twin girls who periodically
come over for an entire day of fun that they call "Camp Katie Day".
We bake, paint, craft, play, watch movies, read, whatever
strikes us as fun plus a whole bunch of fun things I plan
in advance.They are in school and busy with dance classes,
so we don't see them as often as we would like, but when we do they always ask
when the next "Camp Katie Day" is.
Today we had a snack of fresh fruit and I traced the girls on some long white paper
I had saved. We made some pizza dough and headed outside after they all played Barbies
for a while. I had paints and brushes set up as well as a laundry basket filled with library books
and a hammock set up with blankets and pillows for ultimate relaxing.
They painted their "self portraits" and then we cleaned up and played in the pool while they dried.
I weeded the garden a bit while they pulled each other in Princess's wagon all over the yard.
Then it started to rain, so we headed inside and started lunch. The girls watched "How to Eat Fried Worms"
while eating personal size pizzas,chicken fingers,carrot sticks,grapes and melon.
If I had known it was going to be on cable, I would have gotten some gummie worms for a snack!
We ended the day with pink t-shirts I made with the help of Farmer Dad (I could not flip the letters)
and a whole lot of great memories.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
