Camp Number 1 - Check

The boys started their first camp of this summer break. It's their favorite: Omaha Community Playhouse.

Only Mica was kind of a sour Apel about it. 

He said, "Mom I don't think I want to do this camp next year."

I asked, "Why?"

He said, "Because they make us stand around a piano and sing. Then they gave us homework. it's summer break. We shouldn't have to do homework."

I said, "That's too bad you feel that way. It was always your favorite. Singing kind of goes hand in hand with acting. The homework is just learning the songs you'll sing at the end of the week."

He said, "I also think some of the boys in my class aren't very nice."

I asked, "Why?"

Mica said, "Because they talk about ghosts."

I said, "Oh that's not very cool. Just remember that you talked about Ouija Boards just last week. Mica you're not getting out of going to camps. You and your brother can go. It gives you experiences that you can't get at home."

They are memorizing Michael Jackson's Bad, and No Good Deed from the musical Wicked.

I hope he ends up liking his camp! He's kind of that in that in between stage of I want to play with Legos, BUT apps are cooler. I get annoyed with my brother for having googly eyes on his face, BUT I'll go out of the house with sound headphones on. I think it's immature to talk about ghosts, BUT I'll talk about Ouija Boards. Life moves way too quickly. Stay young as long as you can kid!

My boys love to talk about ghosts! He probably wouldn't think they were very nice ;-)

Time does go by so fast. I just said that about my teen and my youngest boy. He's flying through childhood and she's graduating next year. Crazy fast.

Maybe you could find an age appropriate coding camp for him next year?
Allison wouldn't like the theater kind of camps. I just saw her report card. All year she got straight A's EXCEPT in music. C's and B's. How does that even happen? All you do is sing for an hour!

Looks like a great summer camp indeed! But again, it depends on our kids' preference. I don't know whether Bo will enjoy theater, music is fine so far..

Broxton went to VBS for a few days and just was not having fun, so we stopped. Normally I wouldn't quit in the middle, but I was just so tired that having to drive him there every day was not a big loss on my end. lol

He has vbs at our church soon... and then a basketball camp soon
