TIGGER AND LULU GO TO CAMP
Sleep-away camp. First time for Tigger. She’s there for a whole week. A couple of months ago her BFF Lulu moved to California. Happily, Lulu’s mom sent her north for the week so she could go to camp with Tigger. To say that they are pleased would be a tremendous understatement.
We arrived at camp at 2:30, checked the girls in and waited while they underwent a mandatory lice check. I wasn’t expecting that, but hey, it seems like a good idea.
On the way from the check-in area to the tent cabin that will be their home this week, the two girls walked ahead, holding hands sometimes, looking relaxed and thrilled to be there. I was jealous and so was Little Bit. The place looks like fun, with canoes, and paths through the woods, archery, and other campy stuff.
I don’t expect Tigger will be homesick. Heck, Tig would be renting her own apartment at this point if her allowance would cover it.
We handed the girls over to their counselor and they chose their bunks. We were clearly superfluous at that point, so kissed them goodbye and departed.
Don’t worry. I’ll be ok. I think.
