A Happy (?) Camper
My little ninja survived his first camp experience.
I'm not sure who had a more difficult week- Griffin or HH. Griffin was extremely homesick. HH had a difficult time sleeping and sort of wandered around the house, not knowing what to do with himself.
By Wednesday, HH made a trip to the camp to take Griff a bedside fan under the guise that he was the only boy in his cabin at drop-off without one. This probably was not a good idea, because Griffin broke down in tears when he saw his dad. I think that he truly would have gone home with HH, had HH and the camp counselor not persuaded him to stick it out. He was having a great time during the day...it was the nights that were difficult.
Griff was a resourceful little camper, though. Before HH brought him the fan, he had been trading his snacks for the use of another little boy's fan at night. We all got a big laugh out of that!
He's home now, and we're back into our summer routine. I'm not sure what next summer will bring, but I'm hoping that he'll choose to try it again!
