Alex At Summer Math Camp - Lake Tahoe
Song: Our Destiny
Group: Liquid Cinema
Alex is at the Coral Academy of Science Math Camp for 5 days.
We had just dropped him off today.
This is to be his first time away from home.
We arrived at North Lake Tahoe in about one hour.
We were going to meet the Math Camp group at the condo rental office...
however, they were running late, so we decided to get something to eat at a nearby cafe.
This is the Cafe we had eaten at.
The weather was really nice...
and so we had chosen to eat al fresco.
We could see Lake Tahoe from where we sat at the cafe.
Alex at the mountain condo which will serve as the Math and Science Camp
base of operations (elevation approx. 6400 ft.)
The condo has three floors and balconies.
They will be studying advanced Math concepts for many hours a day here...
as well as having some nature walks and other outdoor activities.
When the other children had arrived...
I realized that Coral Academy's top math students were there.
Alex had one classmate there that he had recognized.
Most of the other children were High Schoolers.
There will be, of course, teachers staying at the condo to cook for the children...
to organize their daily activities...
and to teach them.
Alex with some of his fellow Math Camp mates.
Alex seemed excited to be there with the other children.
After dropping off Alex at his camp...
my wife, and I, decided to just take a quick look at the lake.
Tomorrow we will be going back up to drop off some of Alex's favorite types of
food to eat...and to check to make sure everything is going well.
The teachers seem to have everything well in hand...
so...one last check on Alex on the second day should suffice.
(thwop...thwop....thwop....Yes, I know...helicopter parents to the rescue :)
