A Boy's Heaven

After visiting my son at boy scout camp, I understood why he decided he wanted to stay another week and skip coming home. It's pretty much heaven for a boy. I was thinking it's a shame we don't all get some time away at our own version of 'summer camp'. (Everyone's life preserver hanging on the line.)

I liked this little peg board sitting by the tree. It has two sides: "In the water" and "Not in the water". You move the little key ring that has your name on it to the proper side. I was thinking the world would probably be a better place if we all had such a look-out system for each other.


...wishing you your own idea of summer camp...

No, not me, silly! I can not believe that my son is staying for a second week of scout camp! I honestly was doubtful about his staying the first week, so this was a big surprise! We are going to head out there tomorrow for "Family Day", so of course I decided to take some goodies with me. I packed some of his favorite cookies inside this camping-themed box. It's so cute! I'm sure he'll be really impressed - lol!

They are like uncut diamonds.

Discard them and their value will never be known.

Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life."
