Bling the Adventurer visits the Collin County Adventure Camp

On the way from our quaint little post office in Westminster, Texas we drive by the Collin County Adventure Camp.   If you live in the North Texas area, this may be a great consideration for an outing with your children.  In addition to being open year round, they offer both summer camp and day camp.  

Here is the information from their website:
Day Campers will participate in adventure activities, such as hiking, canoeing, fishing, archery, BBs, climbing wall, challenge course, team building and ziplining. Every day will include pool time, games and a hot lunch and afternoon snack is provided.  Collin County Adventure Camp opened its gates with a dream to bring the outdoor learning experience to children of Collin County and the surrounding area.

Back to school and the fun of reading!

Hi Kids!

I know everybody is back to school now, settling into their classes, seeing your friends, and making new friends.  Here is my BIG QUESTION......

Are you reading any fun books in school that you want to share with me?

You all know how much I love reading.  Sometimes my mom's friends tell her about books they've read and then my mom wants to read that same book too.   Will you let me know what books you are reading and then I can read that book also?

My favorite books have lots of pictures.  I LOVE looking at the pictures.  Here is the book I am reading right now.  The title of the book is DOG vs. CATS by Chris Gall.   This is a great book with super pictures.   I don't want to tell you the whole story, but the cats are awesome.  The dog in the book reminds me of my daddy dog, Drew.

If you do read a book, let me know what the name of the book was.  Then, tell me about your favorite part of the book and I will send you a special sticker for reading.  You can email me …
