She survived...And so did I


Bookworm returned from Kids Kamp last night. She had a great time. OF COURSE... I was never worried...Not for one minute...

Unless you count the minute that she was burying her face in the pillow as she waited to climb on the bus to leave....

Or the minute I was looking at the ceiling, wondering if she was in bed yet...and if not, how tired she'd be the next day...

Or the minute when I was taking Popcorn to see the movie "Up" (loved it) and wondered if she would be sad that we went without her...

Or maybe the minute when I was scrubbing the shower and I remembered how disgusting the church camp showers always were...

But other than that, I never worried...Not at all.....

Seriously, though she had a great time. Apparently, she did cry when the bus was leaving the church on Monday. She hung out with a girl in 4th grade who was on her basketball team. The other girl is very quiet, and I had thought maybe they would hook up, but I worried they would both be too reserved to actually approach each other...woops...Did I say worried? I mean, ummmm, concerned. Yep, that's it. Concerned.

It also seems she had a little boy actively pursuing her from the first day. He told her to "meet me at the gazebo at noon if you want to have a boyfriend." Of course, this was in a note via a messenger. Bookworm said he was "relentless." She said, "Mom, that boy was crazy or something. I am way too young to have a boyfriend! I don't want one...He must be drunk or something if he thinks I like him!"

What?

Drunk?

Does she even know what that is? Or how you get that? I don't know, but I had to laugh at her phrasing. And breathe a sigh of relief that she's "too young to have a boyfriend."

*Phew!*

That boy sounds like a player--meet me at the gazebo, indeed! And did she use the word "relentless?" How smart is she!

Of course she is smart. Look at the family that she is in. I am glad that she had fun at camp.
