Season Opener

Sophia attended her first camp of the summer. This past week's educational and recreational endeavor was a theater arts camp. Singing,dancing, acting. It culminated in a performance of "The Wizard of Oz."

The fact that my daughter was chosen to play Dorothy is further proof that adoption rocks. DIH never could wear gingham. But Sophia looked charming.

Camp season is a tricky time. I think of it as an annual workshop in theory v. practice.

Theory: kids should spend alot of time in the great outdoors.
Practice:...where the mosquitoes rule and the sun gives all the kids headaches.

Theory: summer is an educational opportunity.
Practice: you said the same thing about flu season.

Theory: Camps are a great way to meet new friends.
Practice: and you'll get to drive her sixty miles to her next playdate.

I dunno. I suppose it beats sitting around the house pestering mom for more computer time. Next week is vacation Bible School. Now that should be interesting.
