I grew up in an extremely artistic household.  My Pop Yocom was a storyteller, my Deed was a sculptor, my Mama a painter, and my Aunt a puppeteer.  Is it any wonder that as a child I was drawn to the arts like a moth to the flame?

For many years now, I've had the pleasure of running a private summer camp for a beloved client.  It's two sessions: mornings with 8-year-olds, and afternoons with 11-year-olds.  This is possibly one of the harder things I do, when you consider the time spent planning, organizing and executing.

Anyone who knows me, knows that my favorite party in the world is a Harry Potter party!  In fact, if you've ever been to one of my HP parties then you know I play all the characters myself - from Professor McGonagal to Mr.

Years ago, our dear little friend Jake visited the warehouse while his daddy Doug was at work.  My sister Freda promptly plunked down next to Jake and began constructing an intricate lego town while getting into a very deep conversation about the movie Ratatouille.  There was a lull in the conversation, and then, out of the blue, this tiny little voice squeaked, "would you let a rat cook your dinner?" 

Which begs the question;  "Would you let a robot make your coffee"?

I can't believe it's already August!  I swear, just yesterday we were watching fireworks over the Bay.  I just don't know where the summer has gone.  Which is why, before it gets too late, I want to share this fantastic post on Summer Camping Games.
