Here's some of what they do there:
- Bus Them
- Feed Them
- Outdoor Cooking
- Mud Fights
- Wilderness Skills
Why do I send them to this camp? They have fun, they come home tired, and they learn outdoorsy things. It's like a rite to passage camp for kids in Nebraska.
I went when I was little. I loved it! The only difference from when I was little to now, is that they no longer tell scary stories at camp.
This is Isaak's first year at camp.
He got mad that I told him that he needed a bath right away. He wasn't too dirty from camp. He had dirt on his legs and face.
The boys went to bed at 7:45.
It rained off and on all that night before, and morning. It was certainly muddy outside. I was scrambling to find rain coats that fit them. Mica's old one fit Isaak. I sent Mica with mine. They just don't make rain coats for bigger kids that I can find. Any suggestions on where to get rain coats for bigger kids?
Aunt Terra has been picking them up. Then I get them after work. My nephews go to the same camp. She wouldn't let my kids in her house because they were so dirty. *Understandable She paid them to pull weeds outside. Isaak now thinks he can make money at home pulling weeds to.
Isaak got even more mad that I told him that he needed a bath right away. Actually he got hosed off before the bath. He said, "But I had a bath last night!" He had a mud fight that day. He was dirty big time. Just look at his what used to be his white socks.
My littlest man in the making had a limited voice that night. I don't know why he lost his voice. Allergies? Too much of that Hummel Park Feeling? That's a song they sing. Maybe he was screaming during the mud fight.
The boys went to bed at 7:30.
I went to wake Mica up and he looked like this:
Isaak still had crackling voice. I gave him a healthy breakfast, an 8 ounce glass of Emergen-C to drink, and another allergy pill. Travis had them go to the bathroom before they left. At 9 I got a call, "Um is this the Apel household?" I said, "Yes." They said, "This is Hummel Camp. Isaak had a potty accident on the bus ride." Travis had to run across town to bring him new undies and shorts. It's totally my fault. Remember I gave him a lot to drink in the morning for breakfast? Top that off with Isaak being embarrassed. #MomFail
We're not even done with the week.
