Best Letter From Camp Ever!
Here's Leslie's fantasy letter:
Thank you so much for letting me go to camp. I have learned so many cool things, like how to take a fish off the hook, tie sailing knots, and even how to groom a horse. Thanks for packing the sunscreen. I've been out on the lake a lot, so it has really come in handy. You sure think of everything! Since it's been so hot, I've been drinking tons of water! See? I really listen to all your good advice.
The other boys here are really smart and nice. I'm making some lifelong friends I will cherish forever. We've had fun learning camp songs, playing cards, and catching frogs in our free time. During quiet time, I read the book you sent along. What a great selection! And just because you're my mom, I made a special gift for you in arts and crafts!
I'm trying a lot of new foods, just like you suggested. You were right, the oatmeal at breakfast really isn't bad when I add raisins. And don't worry, Mom, I've been using all the manners you've taught me over the years.
We are camping under the stars tonight. I hope to see fireflies.
I love you,
P.S. Tell my brothers I miss them!
Wouldn't that be wonderful. And yes, I would poop flowers if a letter like this ever happened. Here is the actual letter she got from her 8 year old!
I just about died reading this! Best camp letter ever! Are you saving a camp letter from your kids first away camp? Is it the best thing ever? I never went to camp. Some days I wish I had. If nothing else, I know I would have had diarrhea and would have written a pretty similar letter.
