Summer days

Now that we've finally had a few days of actual summer weather I am starting to believe it is real. I just got back from dropping Zoe off at the camp bus and I am filled with longing for my own camper days. I went to day camp and then sleep away camp from the time I was about 6 until I was 13 or 14 and I loved it. I loved the swimming, the arts and crafts, the singing, the campfires, the bad food, the s'mores, the everything. It was all special and unique to summers. To me, that is what summer should be all about and not sitting here at my desk doing the same job like it was any other day.

Growing up kinda sucks sometimes.

Hmm... I loved day camp, but my 1st sleep away camp experience I got hurt the 2nd day (a giant metal disc fell on my foot and broke all my toes) so my memories of that time are filled with pepto bismal and sitting on the sidelines. I'll take your memories as my own I think!
