Fresh for August!

Well, we're back after taking July off! Coding camp was kind of a bust, unfortunately... We were doing really well and then we updated Hopscotch and all the integrated videos went away, which threw off Zephyr enough that he lost interest. I would've tried hard to get him back in it, but since I just started a fresh new job, I fear my mind has been occupied with other things. That's no excuse, I know, but that's how it went. I've been in touch with Hopscotch and they're working on new videos as we speak, so we'll get back to coding really soon.  We did do a few activities in July, though! The kids wanted a treasure hunt so we had another escape room, we (finally) worked out the back design to Zephyr's homemade Pokèmon cards, and we made a paper plate Doraemon mask to celebrate its return to TV...

Really pleased with the craftsmanship here

I upped the challenge on the escape room, so I gave them an extra ten minutes, but they managed to get out

This month we've got a lot of fun in store! The kids are taking two week-long vacations with their grandparents this month, but we'll try out some fun activities in between. Some things to be on the lookout for:

  • We've been playing a lot of Pokèmon GO this summer as the kids have caught Pokè fever, so Superhero drawing studio becomes Pokèmon drawing studio on the 3rd and we'll (hopefully) be in a position to finally mount our Z-Me cards on the 15th.  
  • Teddy Bear School becomes Teddy Bear Camp on the 18th
  • Filmmaking returns on the 29th

Stay with us!
