This week at Wildwood ALC, we came back to the house after the Spring Break.
It was also my first week here, and I’ve made the commitment to document the experiences and activities that occur throughout the two days of ALC madness/fun. Weekly blog posts will be shared with a basic description of all the activities that I manage to keep track of. So much happens here all the time that I might have missed something, or need to update some of the pictures that other people took.

Everyone was full of excess energy on Tuesday, so when Nicole suggested to go on a run around the Wildwood house a few times, all the kids jumped to it! And came back barely calmer but a lot breathless. Spawn then proceeded to happen as one large group, with one thing we liked that day and one thing we struggled with.

- Playing by the creek
I’m too new to Wildwood to be familiar with The Play, but most of the Wildwood girls have an on-going Play that sometimes involves the boys. They decided to take it by the creek today and enjoyed the coolness of the water and the wetness of the dirt on their bare feet.
Throwback Thursday. But don’t throw anything back.
