Day Camp

"Mom! Mom! We went to a creek today and we saw tadpoles and frogs and minnows and water striders! And I caught two tadpoles in my hat but I had to put them back so I could wear my hat...oh, sorry...that's from my shoes--I wore them in the creek. And we climbed on these HUGE rocks and...it's just a little rip, and anyway, these are my old shorts...and then we had a secret mission and we all had to grab each others' arms and run in a big circle with our eyes shut and we built a fort and our fort was so cool and...I'm not bleeding, that's punch!...and our driver Kristen said if we can get all the way to 120 in the number game she'll buy us all donuts! She's so nice and she knows all the best jokes. And we went to the pool and I went off the high dive, like a hundred times! And tomorrow we're going sailing at Mission Beach...Mission Bay...Mission...I don't know, but we're going sailing and they're two person boats and we get to go by ourselves! Stop that--it's just a little sunburn...And the next day we're going rock climbing at Mission...I don't know where...somewhere and there's a rock wall that's 60 feet high and we get to climb it! We have to wear helmets and harnesses and everything! And we get to climb it! Oh, and I need a t-shirt for Friday because we're going to tie-dye them, and can I get a blue one? We're supposed to bring one from home...no, it's just sunscreen...Mom! Stop trying to get that out of my hair! You're pulling it! And did you know we went to a creek today? I caught two tadpoles!"

That's great! Sounds like someone's having a wonderful time! Also sounds like a good time to hide all of the expensive clothes :-)

Inspired. Sounds just like my kids. Especially "I'm not bleeding, that's punch!"

How much sugar glazing was on those doughnuts? Wow.

trek said...

Okay, who sugared up the kid??

But sounds like said kid had a great day.

Awww! I can't wait for The Boy and I to have those conversations...although he's not much of a talker now. I can just imagine what it's going to be like when he gets older.

I absolutely believe that was verbatim. And my brain automatically filled in YOUR comments in there too, raised eyebrows and all! (Love it)

It's what we live for, isn't it?

I'm looking forward to this moment in a few years!
