What a packed week! Filled with Magic playing, cookie baking, airplane making, and flying too, of course! And then on to capture-the-flag games, skate board, unicycle, scooter and rip-stick riding, four-square games, and all manner of card games, British and Scottish accents included as a requirement! And let's not forget the delicious waffle feast for Tuesday lunch; toppings on hot-off-the-griddle waffles included fresh strawberries, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, blueberries, vanilla ice cream, and two kinds of syrup - maple and blueberry. Wednesday started with a flurry of interest in building model airplanes, necessitating a trip to the crafts store to get supplies of balsa wood and glue. A couple of high-flying, creative designs resulted, with aerodynamic adjustments being made along the way to successful flight. The beautiful weather prompted outside art work - our fabulous easel, generously donated to us at the start of this year, is easily moved outdoors for landscape painting. Another lovely Open House happened on Wednesday afternoon, with 15 new kids visiting the Center, and having a wonderful time meeting our members and exploring our beautiful grounds - until the torrential rain arrived at the end of the day!
Thursday evening saw our first Macomber Center Social, an event including good food and music and fun for all who attended. The rain storms that raced through the day stopped for our evening, which allowed people to enjoy being outside and inside at the Center.
Friday morning we set off for a trip to Skyzone, a trampoline gym in Norwood, for a ninety minute jump session. We have been to the gym twice this year, but have not reserved such a long session before today. It included a 3-D dodge ball game, played by about twenty kids for at least 45 minutes - non-stop action! Everyone had a fabulous if exhausting time, to finish our week at Macomber, which included one new member and a visiting teen, hopefully soon to be a member!
