If you have ever been to camp...or have a kid going to camp this summer...or you have a heartbeat...this is HYSTERICAL! Liesl Testwuide writes a blog about her three boys. Here's her version of what she thought her 8-year-old son's letter might be like if he wrote her from camp:
Thank you so much for letting me go to camp. I have learned so many cool things, like how to take a fish off the hook, tie sailing knots, and even how to groom a horse. Thanks for packing the sunscreen. I've been out on the lake a lot, so it has really come in handy. You sure think of everything! Since it's been so hot, I've been drinking tons of water! See? I really listen to all your good advice.
The other boys here are really smart and nice. I'm making some lifelong friends I will cherish forever. We've had fun learning camp songs, playing cards, and catching frogs in our free time. During quiet time, I read the book you sent along. What a great selection! And just because you're my mom, I made a special gift for you in arts and crafts!
I'm trying a lot of new foods, just like you suggested. You were right, the oatmeal at breakfast really isn't bad when I add raisins. And don't worry, Mom, I've been using all the manners you've taught me over the years.
We are camping under the stars tonight. I hope to see fireflies.
I love you,
P.S. Tell my brothers I miss them!
Oh...he wrote her a letter alright. And it's EPIC.
The diyareeya sounds dicey, but the 23 push pops probably make up for it. Awesome...let's read on...
Sounds like he's having a BLAST!!
