It's only too many kids when mine hits, which he won't as he is in weight training 3-4 days a week and Mom boot camp the other 3-4. By the way, I had 12 noon in that pool so I would say that things are actually going better than expected...

I am pretty sure we all went under. I don't think there was a dime riding on Day 2.

I do not envy the Camp Director. Here at Camp Cactus, we are midway through week two of Beagle Boot Camp, involving two Very Large campers of the Labrador persuasion and one Very Strict Beagle Drill Sergeant, prone to harassing the three enlisted cats.

We are a pet-free teen camp. Which is probably a mistake. We could use some help disposing of the pizza crusts in the couch cushions.



Obviously, we need to be COMBINING summer camps. The teenagers would have a whole lot less time to make messes if they were responsible for keeping 2-4 children in the 5-7 year old range alive till the end of the two weeks. Also the 5-7 year olds would be less likely to whiiiiine about boredom if they had teenage boys with whom to "play sports" (scare quotes indicate mis-matched skill levels) or girls with whom to bake. Win-win all around. Especially if the whole lot of them alternates between your house and mine and my friend Holly's, one week each.

They would learn so much. Those little girls would be able to apply mascara while text messaging by the end of the week.
