Hello from the Woods

These past few days have kept me busy with campers and Matthew.  Today Emmett and Charlotte came for the day, and now everyone has been loaded into Grandma and Grandpa's car and are on their way for a brief stopover in The Big City before their big adventure in a cabin Way Up North.

Today is Pirate Day at camp.  It rocked Emmett's world!!!  He and Charlotte are well versed in Pirates.  We read lots of pirate story books and have a couple of pirate movies on heavy rotation at home.( The Pirate Movieand Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A Veggie Tales Movie (Widescreen)Pirates Don't Change Diapers and Pirate Pete)

Everyone was sad to see Matthew go.  He was the camp mascot for the past few days and he and the Programmer are bestest best buds--they were last year too.

Now, the Thomas Trains have been packed up, Matthew's bed stripped, and the knitting is out of it's bag.  It's time for me to switch gears.  I'll probably go to campfire tonight and see if I can still remember the old songs.

Seconds after this picture was taken Matthew took two more steps and filled his boots.
Yesterday morning Matthew walked into my room, handed me my glasses, and then handed me my camera.
