Surf Camp for the Wade Kids

Last week the kids went to surf camp. Yup, California kids go to surf camp in the summer. I certainly can't teach them to surf. They enjoyed it more than they thought they would... and they had five lessons on being water safe in the ocean. Here are some pictures and one little video clip.

I know I am WAY behind on the blog, I am planning to do a long review of the last few months as one entry as a way to catch up. Right now I am working on Madigan's birthday party. So look for an unbelievable comprehensive review of the last few months next week.

This is Thomas doing the "Board Walk". The counselors take the kids out beyond the breaking waves and they hold all of the surfboards together to make a long rectangular raft. Then the kids individually jump up and walk across it. Madigan went first, so I didn't get a video of her, but Thomas was last to go, so I got this video of him. It's not very clear; the camera is the size of a credit card and I was on shore.

Madigan's Note to her Dad

I love you daddy. You are great! I want to do lots of things with you. You are the best dad in the world!

1. You make money for our family.
2. You go to the Navy to make people safe.


P.S. You are not only the best dad in the world, but in the galaxy. I LOVE YOU!
