We picked Eve up from camp today. She was so bouncy and happy to see us! We all had brunch together, then Eve gave us a tour of (some of) her favorite places.
She told us stories the whole way home and then went right to her room and almost cried from exhaustion. I thought she would take a nap, but she listened to music and worked on a friendship bracelet while I took a nap! 😄
My favorite story came when I asked if she got the package I sent her with the disposable camera in it. She brought her toy camera to camp, but it takes terrible pictures and probably ran out of battery, so I made a special trip Wednesday to the drug store and post offic to get her a camera. I envisioned pictures of her friends and her counselors and the horses. Ya know, camp pictures! I had plans to make copies of some of them to share with the other two families. My plans evaporated when I ask her about the camera and she said, “Yeah, but it was really confusing. I mean, it had no screen so I didn’t know if the pictures were good, then I couldn’t figure out how to make it work, and I think it needs something called film?!” I was laughing so hard!!
Now the neighbor kids are over. We couldn’t say no to them because they are leaving tomorrow for a month long vacation! I think everyone will sleep well tonight. I know I’ll be happy to have Miss Eve back in her own bed. ❤
PS. Lex and Asher saw the camera on the counter after I unpacked Eve’s stuff. Eve peeled off all the stickers and wrappings so its just a weird black box. Lex figured out how to take a picture, but I had to show him how to scroll forward to take the next one. The boys took a few pictures of each other but got bored when they realized they couldn’t immediately see them. Hahaha.
