It was Awesome!

Instead of the joyful reunion I envisioned after being away from their mommy for two nights, I got crossed arms, stomping feet and we don't want to go home tantrums. Guess they had a good time. Cooper's favorite parts were campfire and singing songs, fishing off the pontoon, and kayaking. Carter's favorite parts were playing games in the gym and listening to his counselor talk like ET. "He was so funny mom!"
Something that suprised me about their camp experience is that it sounds like they did not hang out together too much. Even at the very first gathering right after we dropped them off, they sat a few rows apart. I thought they would really like the comfort of having each other there...but I guess they didn't need it as much as I thought they would. It is a bittersweet feeling watching your kids grow up and move on to the next stage...excited to watch them try new things , but sad that they are old enough to be so independent and don't need their mommy so much anymore. However, they were glad that they decided to bring their blankies (there was quite a discussion about whether or not they should and if the other kids would laugh at them.) It turns out all the other boys had blankies too! Mom knew best on that one!

Hello Mother....Hello Father

Carter and Cooper are away at Bible Camp for the first time! It is only for two nights, but that is long enough for me! We dropped them off yesterday and they seemed a little nervous, commenting that they didn't know the rules. I'm sure they are having a great time...even though it is raining today for the first time this summer...figures!

Workin Hard for the Money

The neighborhood kids set up a lemonade stand at the golf course yesterday to earn a little spending cash. They also sold golf balls which seemed to sell even better than the lemonade! The boy next door happened to be the CEO of the enteprenuerial adventure and only paid the boys $.50 each for their duties...but that was just fine with them! Poor Kennedy came out to see if they needed any help but was told to go home.

Thirty Years Ago...

It's my birthday! I LOVE my birthday. I have a feeling that sentiment might change as the numbers get higher, but for now I will freely admit that I LOVE LOVE LOVE my birthday! My kids, however, are already tired of hearing me say, "It's my birthday today!". It is true that nobody cares about my birthday quite as much as I do... in honor of my big day I have posted some photos of July 12 over the past three decades. They are my 1st, 4th, 14th, and 24th birthdays. I also want to wish my niece Jillian a very happy 3rd birthday today...Happy Birthday JillyBean!
