My house is full of noise and dirty laundry, that can only mean that my campers are home. They are simultaneously happy to be home and sad that camp is over. I won't lie, I'm happy they're back. Silence is overrated. When we got to camp and saw Dagny hurtling down the hill toward us I realized that it had been a really long week. We found Dane in line for lunch with a plate of food in his hand, when he saw us he handed his plate to Steve and hugged me. I was touched that I came before his hot dog. We all ate together then the kids gave us a tour of the camp and introduced us to their friends. Then it was time for us to see a little part of what they had been up to all week. We watched Dagny act/recite a poem, after that we saw Dane perform in a stage combat scene, and then listened to Dagny sing with a rock band. Amazing, all of it. On the drive home they took turns telling their camp stories. There was so much laughter and positivity, I'd say camp was a huge success. I can't believe that in just a week they grew up so much. They both seem so much older and more mature. I guess all those new experiences will do that to you.
*I took lots of pictures but they all include kids that are not my own. I am still unclear on the ethics of posting pictures of other people's kids without permission. To be on the safe side I won't post any pics of random minors.
