Choirs of angels...

are singing this morning because it is The Last Day of Aquatic Adventures Camp! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! I won't have to eat one more "South Beach" wrap for lunch any time soon, I won't have to spend all day reminding the little red-headed girl to put on more sunscreen, I won't have to break up any more water gun fights with kids who are mad because they got shot with water. (Uh hello, don't play if you don't want to get wet!) I won't have to explain to the annoying kid why he can't get mad when "the shark" turns him from a minnow into a shark and that if he doesn't want to get tagged then he shouldn't play, I won't have to rush out the door in the morning to make sure I'm there for camp opening at 9 AM, and last but certainly not least, I won't be missing The Son from 9AM until 4PM (or later) every day. Things will be returning to my semi-blissful SAHM(ish) days as of 4PM this afternoon. Hallelujah! 

Remember back when I was excited to do this camp? What was I thinking? Truth be told, I will miss some of the kids and it was fun (most of the time) but I really am glad it's done! Phew.

I would be happy it is over too. Do you think you will do it again?

Wow, this sounds like an incredible amount of work! Hope you do something super restful afterward.

I must say Caren, I am very proud of you. You NEVER got up and out that early in the city! To be there at 9 is pretty close to a miracle for you. I remember when it was hard for you to be ready by 11am. FANTASTIC, although I am happy it is over for you. I will be going through it next year when Michael has to be at school at 7:55am. I may be looking a HOT MESS, Monday through Friday.
Smooches!
