New Camp

The first day of the new camp is over, and they only lost one lunch box (youngest's) which may magically reappear tomorrow, and the kitchen floor is covered in sand. To boot, the friens-we-stay-with's cleaning lady finished off THREE bottles of laundry soap, and two bottles (one nearly full) of stain remover. I mean REALLY! None of the laundry was ours of course, so when I went to try to get the laundry done...back to hand washing.

Those shoes I bought at Walmart? They won't do. Eldest's lack of sailing shorts I simply forgot about, and they aren't supposed to wear jeans or cut offs anywhere in camp...I mean give me a break ladies and gentlemen this is C.A.M.P. I have to buy them an entire wardrobe? We's goin' to be breakin' some rooooles my friends...'cus youse guys are just a leeetle bit unreeeeasonable.

Eldest has a lovely sunburn.

- did you put on the sunscreen?

- no

- well, do that for three more days and your body will be a writhing mass of puss filled blisters

-EEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. OK M O M, I get it....

Youngest informed me that they went sailing in nothing but their bathing suits - I assume the unsuitable shoes were also worn since they are so hyper about the type of shoes - I think I smell a lawyer somewhere here abouts....

I did not believe her on that note, they must have had lifeys on, and they did, but oh my goodness, they are going to get skin cancer if they are sitting out in a boat all the time in nothing but a bikini and a lifey.....and of course the proper shoes....

Eldest had a nasty kid in her boat, and after grousing and complaining about it all night finally informed me, on her way to bed, that the instructors said that she doesn't have to sail with him tomorrow....

The joys....

Truth be told, they had a fabulous day, and really enjoyed it, we just have to get a couple of life lessons in place, like....say.....do not put your soaking wet sand covered shoes in your knapsack, and....say....do not take your soaking wet, sand encrusted pants OUT of your knapsack in the middle of the kitchen floor. It is good for getting a reaction, but I don't need the blood pressure work out.

Thankyouverymuch.
