Camp Gigi with 4-1/2-year-old Elliot began at 9:30 this morning. Several major activities on the list have already been checked off, with four days to go. 😳 Year one, when he was just 1-1/2 his heart was broken when his moms left. Last summer he was very brave saying goodbye to his moms and baby Adrian. (We skipped the year between: two was a tough year, Gigi was not feeling brave.) This year bravery was not needed, he didn’t even wave goodbye. But he was happy to see Adrian, who was missing him, by Facetime at the end of the day. Bath, pizza/movie night, games (I was declared “incredible” in my ability to match his ColorKu marble pattern), four books in bed, and out in two seconds at 7:30.
8:00: I’m in bed too. Tomorrow is going to be really long.
It’s a wrap. We forgot to write in our journal. Oh well, morning activity.

I like the side trip to Camp Hubbub!
Perfect. For both of you. Making memories that will last long after Camp Gigi winds up this summer.
I’m looking forward to a three week Camp Grandma with my nine-year-old granddaughter this year. Yes. I’m going to be exhausted….but oh-so-blessed.
Adorable ! He’s a lucky little boy and he’ll remember this time forever (as will you). Pretty awesome to touch a life like that *
Enjoy every moment.
