we experienced summer camp for the first time this summer. and by we, i mean william and wes. they went to twin lakes for a week back at the end of june/beginning of july with their buddies, clay and mason. i wasn't a fan of camp as a kid, and chase wasn't either. so....we didn't know what to expect out of them. their favorites were the waterfront, the ropes courses, and riflery and archery. i'm certain that they didn't brush their teeth much, but they had a great time! and they brought home all the smelly, wet clothes to prove it!
drop off day...
this is the tupelo 2nd grade crew! (mason, bristo, sam, and wes)
pick up day!
our friend/babysitter/church member was a lifeguard at the lake this whole summer. i'm not sure how much she actually saw them, but it was nice to know that miss myriam was around!!
while the big boys were at camp, reed had grandparent camp in jackson. he got to spend some time with sam and go fishing!
and while everybody else was having fun, we kept on moving south down to hattiesburg for our own little "golf camp." chase's buddy, ronnie, met us and we tried out a few courses down there and ate some good food. it's the first time i've ever been there besides driving through, and i hope it's not the last time i visit. i really liked it! plus, ronnie and i came so close to having holes in one on the same hole!!
after camp pick up, we drove through the monsoon to get home in time for the 4th of july shindig in our culdesac. we all had a blast, and we only almost burned down our neighbor's house once.
it was a super fun week for all of us. i'm thinking we may need to make this a yearly thing!!
