My big girl got away for a week of summer camp. Swimming, games, archery and more, but most importantly, praising God. The Pines Catholic Camp is just incredible. She had a wonderful time. But the real good news was after the week was over and we went to pick her up, when I saw her I cried and when she saw me she cried. Love her. A lot.
My friend took this picture. I totally embarrassed her trying to unpack for her, so once we picked up on the vibe - we left.... But she was super nervous so it was hard to leave her. But, sure enough, after we left, her friend showed up and she was super happy. Yay.
She spent a lot of time with her friend. But her and J also got to meet two other girls that she really liked and became friends with. AND she also had an autistic girl in her cabin who was a sweet girl and Lexi got to really appreciate how to interact with someone with special needs and enjoy such a wonderful person as the special human being that she is. She also had a girl... with... an... odd personality.... Learning experience. She LOVED her counselors "Flo" and "Bakerella" by the way.... I appreciate them for making her experience so great.
We pre-addressed and stamped her stationary and she wrote letters to her grandmas and her cousins and we got THREE letters. She is so awesome. I'm so glad she had such a wonderful time. Thank you Pines for such a fun, safe and sandy place. My other little girl is talking about you non-stop - she wants her turn BAD... to be cont'.
We love you lulu.
