Cam's parents are very familiar with presentations.
Jane presents almost daily for her job via video, now from her home office. Last week, Cam was given an assignment to research a biome and provide a computer slide presentation to his class. His topic was the rainforest. Ms. Ann, his expert tutor, worked with him to plan out the exercise, making certain they had plenty of time. After finishing daily homework, the rainforest topic was reviewed. Cam's slides had to contain certain elements and Ms. Ann insisted that these were his own words and thoughts. She calculated that Cam spent a total of 7 hours on the project when they finished it up Friday night! We were all commenting how good it feels to finish something you're assigned to do.
After all of that hard work, we had a fun Saturday planned out. In the afternoon, Cam and Jane went to pick up Cam's best buddy, Brody and his mom, Jenny. The boys had been talking about seeing a movie and the chosen one, "Addams Family 2" was playing at the local theater. Of course, we first secured popcorn and treats for our matinee. Following the fun showing, we strolled over to Buffalo Wild Wings for a tasty dinner. Jenny and Jane were pretty impressed with both of their boys using such nice manners with the waitresses. On our ride home, we all commented that the movie/dinner combo should become a regular occurrence.
Chris and his son went together for their handsome haircuts this week.
Cam's dad, always ready for fun, found a ring light in the barbershop to snap a fun pic. It seems that some traditions, like this one, will remain timeless no matter how old these two are.
Sunday afternoons, father and son can usually be seen working on a computer project. Chris now has his desk in the sunroom where Cam's homework area is also located. It seems our kiddo definitely has a mind for technology and for helping his dad have patience when it comes to troubleshooting.
