Summer Day Camp- Day 1

Thank goodness I did my grocery shopping and meal planning yesterday because Summer Day Camp wore me out. I'm not sure I'll be able to do anything for the rest of the day!! HA!

Maggie had a great time, to say the least. Of course, she loves having a mission and "school work"! When we were walking to our car she said, " You know what the best part of my day was??? The puppet show.". She is so excited about going back tomorrow!!
I stayed in the nursery and was only expecting to have three children ,but I ended up with seven. Now once upon a time, I could have handled several years ago before I had kids and was a preschool teacher myself. I helped out with the babies a few times and could easily handle having 5 all by myself. We ( me and fellow mother, Joy) quickly found out that most of the bigger kids (between 1 and 2 years old) were used to having a morning nap. We had two babies, both 5 months old and the rest of them were between 1 and 2 with Ellie being the youngest of the big kids. When one cried, they all cried and of course, three of them had separation anxiety. In other words, the only ones that didn't have separation anxiety were the babies (one was Ms. Joy's baby) and Ellie. And, they all wanted to be held at the same time!!

Tomorrow, I'm taking a sling, but today I'm sharing pictures of my girls on their first day of camp.Notice Maggie's socks!!

Working in the nursery at church completely wears me out. It seems like the longest 1.5 hours of my life. We have nursery duty this Sunday too! That is, if we stay in town.
