C went to summer camp! Our local YMCA camp has a beginning day camp that is only 3 days long. I am a HUGE champion for summer camp as a former camper and counselor so I was quite excited when I realized he would be old enough for camp this year. They do have traditional camp for 4-year-olds as well, but I didn't think he was quite ready for that. Three days was perfect.
He was so excited! We got his backpack all packed the night before and he was very much looking forward to using his moose lunchbox he got for Christmas.
Husband was in charge of taking him to the bus. C marched on to the bus like a champ! He was ready.
Husband was slightly more hesitant about his day camp experience. I was half super excited and half "how is my baby big enough for camp?" M was decidedly NOT a fan of her best friend leaving her three days in a row.
His counselors were Peter Pan and Blossom. I don't really understand the whole "fake name" thing. (Cue the "back in my day...") But there you have it. C loved camp. They did it all, just like the big kids. Horses, canoes, archery, swimming, tie dye, s'mores but it was tailored at a speed for littles.

He is now sleeping in his tie dyed shirt that he is so proud off, incredibly tan and exhausted from three days of fun.
On Sofia the First, the fictional Buttercups (scout) motto is "Buttercups Buttercups make some room. Buttercups Buttercups watch us bloom." And that is what my guy did. He bloomed. I am so proud of him.
