Camp Recap

Camp came to an end last Friday, and it was a very good experience for both boys.

In the 25 days of camp, they…
– went through 4 and a half bottles of spray sunscreen
– went on 5 field trips
– played 3 different sports (baseball, dodgeball, and kickball)
– brought home dozens of little prize toys
– popped at least 5 balloons between them (also from the prize bin)

In the 25 days of camp, I….
– drove at least 1000 miles (probably closer to 1800, if I’m being honest.  Camp was nearly 20 miles from home, and most days I had to go home after dropping the boys off because Thumper had home therapy)
– drank many cups of coffee
– attended 4 parent coaching sessions for ADHD kids (these sessions are actually continuing through August)
– ate out far too often
– saw many, many, MANY bad drivers

The boys were definitely apprehensive about camp when it started, but loved it by the time it ended.  Tad was quite emotional by the time he was saying good-bye to his counselors, and said “My eyes are filling with water,” while he struggled not to cry.

And now, the boys are feeling like they are at loose ends until school starts.  The first thing they tried to do on Monday – the first day with no camp and nowhere to be – was have a wrestling match that ended in tears.

School starts September 6th.  In case anyone happens to be counting down.
