Ten o’clock and only my second blog today. Too busy living life to blog it.
Spent the first half of the day at Thinking Day with 6 girl scouts, one visitor, one sibling, a college student and another mother. That was just our troop. There were 14 troops and the brownie troops were 15-20 girls each. Lots of giggling and wiggling and not completely paying attention to the older girls who were trying to lead the program, but I think everyone had fun. I had fun but I’m really glad it’s over. I had two parents take their girls to the regular meeting place and time despite printed flyers, e-mailed flyers, e-mailed directions and even a phone call reminder. One of the parents was just irritated, the other was downright cranky. I feel terrible about the mixup and wonder if next time we shouldn’t just meet and travel together.
Spent the second half of the day looking at a “summer camp expo” at the mall. The children all picked up stickers, pencils and candy. I have a mountain of brochures to camps we can’t afford. Visited with the great-grandmother briefly. Came home and watched Noah do some homework as well as read a book then took Noah to the grandparents for the night. Home at 9. Checked e-mail. Blogged quickly. Now I’m going to collapse in bed and stay as long as possible.
“Haze” was a very nice little book. Target audience is teens, but there’s a little message in there for parents.
