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.

  1. I bet he’s gonna have a great time! I like you went to camp when I was in 6th grade and had a blast! I remember being nervous at first but when you get there and you’re around all your friends the nervousness fades and it’s all fun from there 🙂

    1. I went to chaperone a.k.a. fulfill a district requirement and he was having such a great time that he barely noticed I was there. I felt pretty good about it.

  2. Omggg lolol that last picture of Soren <3

  3. Soren is to funny! hope you and Aiden have a great time at camp 😉

  4. such gorgeous kid!! i taught at camp when i got out of art school, it was fun!

  5. I went to music camp from the time I was 8 or 9 until I was 15. Some of my best childhood memories are from those days. I hope Aiden has a great time!

  6. I love the pictures of Soren. Sometimes we just don’t want to nap till we are adults and then we really want a nap.

  7. This is a GREAT idea!!! I am going to write this idea down and try to make it a goal I accomplish starting next year! To be able to watch them grow over a year would be amazing! 🙂
