PlusOne had an awesome time at camp. He forgot about mom, dad, memere and Lucky! He also made several new friends.
The counselors all want him back next year. And PlusOne wants to go back. He was in the water swimming every day, he learned how to kayak (and loves it) and he loved archery.
He won two regular awards (Super Shark Swimming Award and Old School Archery Prowess award) (shark is the highest swimming group) and one of the big FIVE Spirit awards, The Head Award, for using his head. Head, Heart, Hand and Health are the four principles of 4-H. (Spirit is the fifth award.)
One of the counselors told mom that PlusOne was the smartest boy in the group, and that's why they gave him the award.
When mom unpacked his bags, she found the soap - UNUSED! (no wonder he smelled when she picked him up) and several pair of clean underwear. Turns out he loved the new boxers mom bought him, he wore them every day. While he was in the shower, USING the soap and shampoo, Mom threw everything in the wash, so he couldn't possibly put on anything that wasn't truly clean.
Lucky slept well for the first time in a week! And we both got in some good cuddling time. We'll tell you more later. Mom's falling asleep. If she told you about her day yesterday, you'd all just think she was insane. Which she is, but still...
