The Good the Bad and the Ugly.

We're home safe and sound and with all of our children in tact from camp.
They had a terrific time and we loved hearing about everything they did all week. I will say that sending a girl is great because we got lots more detail from her than we did from Tee. These are just a few of the things we heard yesterday that made us laugh and cry.

The Good.
On the way to camp; "Look Sadie, a cow! Look! There's a horse! And look at the rooster!"
The Bad.
Graham then yells as we pass a cemetery; "Look Sadie, dead people!"

The Good.
Olivia pulled us outside and said; "Mom, Dad, I know you're going to start freaking out and be so excited when I tell you this... I asked Jesus into my heart this week."
The Bad.
She then looked at Graham and said; "Graham, you're going to Hell."

The Good.
"Guess what! At camp, we learned a new word for 'bottom'! You call it a watermelon."
The Ugly.
"Mom, you have a really big watermelon."

Mercy Street is taking 60 or so kids back to Pine Cove today for the week and our whole family has been invited. We thought it would be so hectic washing all the kids' clothes from last week and then repacking them. As we went through their bags, we found that Olivia had only worn two shirts and two pair of shorts the whole time she was gone.

The Good.
Tee apparently changed clothes more often than Olivia.
The Bad.
He only wore one pair of underwear. All week.

I'll try to post from camp but if I can't, I'll see ya'll when we get back! If I give you the address, could you send me a care package with Milk Duds and Diet Coke? On second thought, maybe we should skip the Milk Duds 'cause, you know, my watermelon.

Have a great week!

I don't think I'll ever look at a watermelon the same again.

Have fun at Pine Cove!

That was great!
And so like life - the good and the bad. The fun and the work. The laughing and the crying.
The new and the old.
The changing and the same.
Love it!

OK! What is it with your kids and your "watemelon"?
Kids, your mom is a stick!
Hope camp is great. Praying daily for you all and all the Mercy Street kids.
A mother has to ask.... is Trey protecting his burns from the sun??? Never mind....probably don't want to know, even at 40!

I totally win the biggest watermelon contest by far.
Have a Super Fun time at camp. I can't wait to hear all about it.

Big Mama said...

Dang. Now I'm going to worry that all those M&M's I just ate are going to affect the size of my watermelon.
