Yesterday the kids and Brian went up to the park office for the annual Prairie Day Camp. The theme this year was A Night On The Prairie. They spent the day learning about animals that come out a night. They went looking for insects. Gavin found a cricket and a small spider. Matthew found a spider and placed it on Sam's desk. Shhhh.....don't tell Sam. They worked on their shirt, decorating them with glow in the dark paint. They played a game where they were coyotes and went looking for food. The night was ended with a story around the campfire. I think they had a great day. I know they came home and fell into bed. All three were asleep very soon. If you live around Prairie State Park, you really should check out all the programs they have for the public. Just give them a call.
