Instead, our program will consist of making Minions, playing outside if the weather is nice (if not an indoor obstacle course will be the replacement) and swimming.

Please assure that all swimming essentials are pack for Saturday as well as appreciate gear for the weather (ex: sunscreen and cooler clothing).

Have a wonderful week!
