The girls are back from camp. I don’t think I ever got around to posting this, but all last week they were at sleep-away camp. They go to Camp Mohawk which is a YMCA camp in Northwestern CT. This is Agent K’s fifth year at camp so I’m at the point where I can send them there and not *really* worry about them too much. (By saying *really*, I mean not much above my normal level of worry.) Anyway — dropping off 3 girls and picking up 3 girls all at once is always a bit difficult. At drop offs they are all anxious to go to their own cabins and pick out their beds and there are 3 of them and only 2 of us. At pickups they all have their own little agendas too, and once again there are 3 of them and only 2 of us. So, this is all leading up to me telling you about the amazing thing that happened yesterday. LFB came down from VT to get Grandpa to take him up to spend some time with him and LFG at their home and they also took Agent K with them! This is really great for a multitude of reasons. Great for Agent K because she gets to have a new experience and gain some more independence and great for us because for a few days there are 2 girls at home and 2 of us! Phew.
So yesterday, after doing a very large quantity of yard work, we took Agents J and B off to play mini-golf — the least bickery mini-golf that I have ever played with children in my entire life! And another most amazing thing happened; the person least likely to have the lowest score and win the game actually won! (And if you have ever played mini-golf with me, you would know who that could be!) After the game, as we were really ALL winners, we took the girls to the store to pick up some groceries and let them each choose 2 ice cream toppings for sundaes. Yum!
