On Summer Camp Choices & a Smiley PJ-Clad Toddler

First, these pictures have nothing to do what I want to talk about. They are just my #3 in a nutshell. Like, if I had to pick five pictures of Lawson that summarized his personality it would be these.

Random toys (the kid LOVES toothpaste!). A belly hanging out of his shirt (he gets it honest from his mama). Curls for days (yep, from his mama too). Scrapes and bruises and bug bites. And the sweetest, happiest, most cheerful disposition you ever saw.

This, folks, is my Lala to a “T”.

Now, what I really want to talk about. Summer camps.

Can I just say I am MORE THAN A LITTLE jealous of my kids’ summer camp possibilities?! I’ve been making a list for my older two in my planner as I’ve come along options or heard other parents mention them and MM has like THIRTEEN top choices and Moseby has seven (and he’s just in Pre-K & they typically don’t have as many choices as older kids). And theses camps are not just some dumb ones either. They are GOOD. (I’m using all caps here so you know JUST HOW JEALOUS I AM!).

Mixed media art classes with each day focusing on a different material.

Make your own pottery. On a wheel. Learn how to use a kiln.

Creative writing camp.

Culinary science camps–multiple choices and cuisines.

Junie B Jones camp.

Magic Treehouse camp.

Ten different types of religious (or not) sleep-away camps.

The mandatory southern Vacation Bible School, haha.

Sports broadcasting.

Princess camp.

Cheerleading. Volleyball. Softball. Basketball. Lacrosse. Playball. Horseback riding.

Reading camp.

Sewing camp.

An explore Atlanta camp with a field trip every day.

I seriously could go on and on and on. And that’s just hers.

Moseby’s choices include dinosaur camp, picky eater camp (he doesn’t want to go to it but I am SO TEMPTED to sign him up for it!), snake/lizard/bug camp, super hero camp, train camp, etc.

And I’m green with jealousy. Where are all the camps for adults?! I have been wanting to take an adult art class (either oils or nudes or watercolor…or at this point anything!). I would love to learn how to use a pottery wheel. Or even arrange flowers. Or how to make sushi. Heck, I might even want to go to super hero camp!

As I was talking to MM tonight about her top two choices (she’s going to her first week-long sleep-away camp plus two local camps plus two VBS plus a week at the beach so girlfriend is going to be busy or I’d let her pick more!) she said, ‘Gosh, Mommy, how do you even narrow it down?!’

Let me know when you figure it out, sister.

{In case you’re wondering she’s leaning towards culinary science class here and art class here. Moseby wants to do dinosaurs and Playball. Oh, and he’s for sure doing swim lessons, whether he likes it or not.}

And if any of you know of some summer camps for mamas (sans kids of course) you just let me know, m’kay? 😉

And if you want to see this funny guy’s personality in real-time, here’s a video. I love that he laughs just THINKING he’s going to be tickled. Full of joy, I tell you!
