Some call it summer camp, I call it exhausting

Let's just say that I'm ready for Summer Day Camp to be over.

I've enjoyed staying in the nursery with six or seven little ones this week, but my brain is jello. JELLO. I had forgotten how it feels to watch over other people's children and it's just so different for me now that I have my own babies. Ellie doesn't mind sharing me, but she wants me all to herself again.

One of the big perks has been all of the Ellie-loving that I get in the afternoons! She has never been snuggly and cuddly like her sister, but this week she's been all over me. She also enjoyed being worn in the sling today while I was changing diapers and carrying a little baby. She loves it when the other children start to leave at the end of the morning because she is ready to come home.

Of course, Maggie has had a great time. She loves Church, art and learning new things. I think she'd go to Summer Camp every week if they offered it!

Next week we'll welcome Cousin Callie into our home to spend the mornings with us. I'm thinking we may go to the zoo to celebrate the first full week of her summer vacation...if it's not too hot.

P.S. It's alarming to change a diaper and see a p.enis when you haven't changed a boys diaper in 7+ years.

LOL to your last comment. It is alarming to me to change a girl's diaper. I'm like "whoa, that?!?!" Yet I have the same thing...the viewpoint is just different!

Andrew's summer camp lasts two weeks. I get two weeks (40 hours) of alone time. I'll def. be busy doing things around here like painting, etc. I am contemplating a massage....something I haven't had in about 1.5 years.
