One of our FAVORITE things about summer is the flexibility to go on field trips! Whether it's a baseball game or trip downtown Holland we love exploring new places and experiencing new things with the kids.
We took a trip to Frederik Meijer Garden where our teenagers enjoyed being able to get outdoors and see all the unique plants and flowers at the gardens. This group experienced some youthful play at the Sensory Garden by engaging their sense of touch, see, taste, hear, and smell. One of our yearly trips is downtown Holland for Street Performers. This year was even more special because we got to see Kylen and some of our other volunteers in action with Silkscreen's Printmobile.
We took two different groups to Whitecaps games this summer. Both kids and teens were excited to see a baseball game in person. For some there was a lot of learning about the rules and scoring. Others are huge baseball fans and were pulling for the Whitecaps win or loose. We all got to spend time together and the hotdogs didn't hurt either. After the game we stopped for ice cream to finish off a great night.
Thank you to all that have provided for us to go on theses trips and accompanied us as chaperones. We are so excited to see what the final weeks of summer have in store!
