5th grade camp was last week.
r is our 5th grader.
big red took the week off and went along to chaperone.
big red loves camp. he went to 5th grade camp several years ago with our oldest and didn't want to miss out camping with r this year.
i over-packed for them. it's what i do.
they had a ball.
b and i met up with them one night for dinner in the lodge. and i brought nail clippers because i had forgot to do r's nails before camp. r was a bit annoyed with his manicure at camp. can you imagine? whatever.
so left without his momma and in the wild, r built a fire and a shelter.
he held a tarantula and several snakes.
he tried archery.
he went no-handed on the high ropes course. (i have a video of that, but blogger is not allowing it to load)
some times, boys need some time without their mommas.
but r turned up his nose at dinner one night this week. then i found out he voluntarily ate a worm at camp. oh, correction....half a worm. c'mon. are you kidding me?
love and light and bravery to try new things
