School age invades the Sam Davis home!!

I got the pleasure of going on the field trip today with the school age kids!! We went to the Sam Davis home in Smyrna, TN. It was very interesting and informative! We got to tour the house where he lived as a child. 
We got to see the actual place he is buried. Sam Davis was killed by being hung after a guilty verdict for being a spy in the civil war. 
The kids got to play with toys made during the time period. 
As the director, I don't always get to do fun things like this so I was definitely thankful for the break! The kids were so much fun and overall well behaved! You should definitely go see the beautiful home that we saw today!!

On Friday we had donuts with dads!! To show appreciate for all the dads at our center, we set up a table with different types of donuts!  They could stop by with their child and enjoy a tasty breakfast before work! 
I happened to catch one of our father and son having a special moment together! 
I'm so glad we are able to have special events like this! Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dedicated dads out there! Hope you all have a great weekend! 

School age summer fun!!

The school age summer quest camp has been going non-stop since summer started! Every week the campers go on field trips, anything from skating and bowling to the Nashville zoo! 
The zoo was so much for everyone! I asked the kids what their favorite part was and of course it was the jungle gym. So I asked what their favorite animals were, most said the Giraffes!! 
Although they loved the zoo, I think an all time favorite so far has been skating! They have been asking me to go back! 
Also the school age children have been giving back to the community. They hosted a food drive and donated boxes of food to Second Harvest Food bank! I'm so proud of all their efforts!! 
Visit their website to find out ways you can help too! 

Keep checking in to see all our fun events going on!!
