Søren should be napping, but he’s not. I saw the door wiggle a little and told him to get back in bed. He peeked his head out instead. His favorite nap time activity is to read books, which I guess I can’t complain about. It could be a lot worse. Normally I’d make sure that he has a good nap because he’s crazy if he doesn’t, but I was too busy helping Aiden pack for Science camp. When I went to school it was called “6th grade camp”, and his school attends in 5th grade. I remember so many feelings of nervousness and excitement. I can’t help but worry inside for him. I know he will be fine, especially since I’ve volunteered to chaperone the first night. I enjoy volunteering with his school and class, but I will admit that this particular occasion was with a more selfish agenda because I wanted to make sure that he would be ok on his first night away from family. We finished packing before dinner and Søren played quietly in his room through most of it. They’re both growing too quickly.
Did you go to camp with your school as a child? Did you have a good time?
