This season is supposedly slower. Lazy.
Sipping tea on the front porch, playing with lightening bugs and hollering to your neighbors across the way.
Not happenin any more.
My boys just got back from scout camp today. They’ve been gone since Wednesday afternoon. Dad went with them because that’s what scout dads do. He’s also a leader, and they like to see them at camp too.
It was, from what I can gather, incredibly fun, despite the near record breaking heat (105 one of the days). #4 had a blast, made a ton of friends with the staff . One friend in particular was quite a score for him. This staffer evidently taught the “outdoor cooking” class and was quite impressed with my son. SO, every afternoon at 4 pm, when the rest of the kids not in this class were sweating or swimming or shooting or something else along those lines, my smart little man was making a great snack. He made banana boats, pizza, quesadilla, and one more thing I can’t bring to mind right now. Seriously, I knew the kid was brilliant, at six he knew who to make friends with! Definitely ruled by his stomach!
#3 had a ball too, did wonderfully on his shooting, getting 48 out of 50 the first try. He got to do so much and really enjoyed hanging out with his friends. He seemed to have a blast. When asked what his least favorite thing was about camp he was clear with his response of “absolutely nothing!”
I am so glad they get to go to these things. There is so much they get out of these summer camps that I didn’t get to experience as a child. (Mom just doesn’t understand the need for summer camp)
I just need to figure out how to schedule it so everyone is out at once! Then maybe I’d get to pack in more “lazy days” of summer and less “crazy days”
