Heritage Camp - China

Shaelyn got to go to Heritage Camp this week. It is a camp for internationally adopted kids and they put them into their birth country by age. The four sections are China, Eastern Europe, South American and Korean. It was so much fun again and it's nice that they get to meet other adopted kids from their country. Here are some of the cool crafts she got to make - a paper lantern, a map on China and fabric painted Chinese words on a shirt. What a great experience for her again.
