Camp was a "Blast"



Sorry, I haven't posted in a while. That's the longest I've ever gone. Nothing to post about last week. Collin and I just moped around the house missing the brothers. We were so excited when we got up on Friday morning and were on our way to go get them. When we got home, I had to work for four hours. Then that night we ate pizza and watched the DVD from camp and had a fun family night.




So, apparently, they had a "blast" at rocket camp. They are already planning on returning next year. The first two nights they had terrible thunder storms. They both said it was so loud. I'm glad they made it through that! I actually had D call the camp to see if they were ok. They think I'm a freak.

They spent the week (a little time each day) making rockets. On Thursday, they launched them. Both of theirs did great. Unfortunately, afterward, Theron couldn't find his. He watched it land, nobody was up on the hill where it landed, and when everybody's was launched, they went up to get their rockets, and he couldn't find his. When I picked them up, even though I had to go to work, we all searched up on that hill for 45 minutes. We just couldn't find it. Those who know me know how I usually scream around any kind of buzzing, stinging flying things. I was so wanting to find that rocket for him, I barely made a peep. The boys were very impressed with that. Theron said I must have really wanted to find it! I said, of course I did. I love you. Well, apparently the earth swallowed it up because it was nowhere in sight. So, daddy took them out to Hobby Lobby over the weekend to get new ones to make together and launch. They're planning on launching them out at the base this weekend. Of course I'll post pictures!



When I was picking them up, one of the CIT's asked me who I was there to pick up. I said Theron and Shane. She said, they're brothers???? The other CIT's there looked at each other in complete and utter shock. "Theron and Shane are brothers?" "I never in a million years would have guessed it!" It was funny. I told the boys that was good. They are two distinct people with unique personalities. They agreed. It's a good thing. It's always fun to freak people out also!
Susie, now you'll have to e-mail me and tell me all about what they "actually" did. Since I mentioned CIT's are you singing the song from Meatballs????? I have....

So, today was the first day of school. OK, let's let the tears start falling! I tried really hard not to cry when I was standing there in line with Collin. Only a few tears leaked out. Wendy knows how I balled my head off when I dropped him off to kindergarten last year. That was hard enough. Letting him go for a half a day. Now this! This is brutal. Heartbreaking. He's my baby. My friend. My little dude. When did I get so old????? Wah!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so off my game, I forgot my camera. Wah!!!!!!!
So, I should change my profile. I really am not a stay at home mom. I now have two, yes, count them two part time jobs. For those of you who know me, I got a job working at where I worked in Ohio. For privacy and safety reasons, I'm not going to say where that is. Let's just say the "mother ship" has once again called me home. We'll see how this goes. I may be saying adios to the library. I'll just have to see.
So that's my news. Sorry so long in between posts. I have more pictures from camp with my boys actually in them. They're just in one of those disposable cameras. You know, the dark ages? When I develop them, if they're good, I'll post them.

Wow...sounds like camp was a huge success! Glad the boys had a good time! So sad to hear about the missing rocket...what an awesome daddy your hubby is to make new ones!

Two jobs?! And I keep whining about keeping this baby at my house 3 days a week. I'm a weenie.

Looks like so much fun! I agree, they don't look or act like brothers, unless they're alone together. Then you can see how much they love each other.

does working two part time jobs make it a full time job?! just pondering that one!

Shana-Lynn said...

It sounds like a fun time for your boys. Good luck on the new part-time job.

I had no idea there was such a thing as rocket camp! But how cool! We were actually watching some kids fire off a rocket in a field the other day. Nick was mezmorized (sp?) by it. I wish I could do that with him but I'd probably launch the rocket into my face or something. Guess we need to talk to Brent about that.
