a week in review

Pin It

We are back from a week of Sr. High Camp. Things went pretty well, considering we were not planning to be directing that camp this year. So that makes this the second year of us officially quitting. I wonder if we'll still be trying to quit next year too!

Thanks to Bro Army Man and his wife, for their loan of their camper trailer. I am now spoiled forever. I don't know that I'll be able to handle cabin or tent camping again! At least, not with small children.

Nathanael decided to be all progressive last week. On Monday, he rolled over on his own. I consider that the "first" because other instance were in question as to how much help he had by the surface he was laying upon. Somewhere in the middle of the week (the days blurred together by then) he was grabbing his toes. He was also making directed grabs (usually a closed fist grab, if that makes sense) at my necklace. He was gathering in hands that came near his face to chomp on fingers. He also started to figure out on Friday how to reach out and hook the edge of a plate with his fingers and pull it towards him. So now, plates go farther away!

Elizabeth had a fantastic time at camp. There were some other non-camper staff children present, and they were quite the pack. There was a boy called Aidan who she kept calling "Jake" (her cousin), even though Aidan is 8, and Jake is 2. Mid-week, Aidan sent Elizabeth a note through inter-camp mail (AKA "fuzzy grams") saying he thought she was fun, and "I guess it's okay if you call me Jake." She had it figured out by the time the week ended. She made a new friend, Tori (my friend, whom E is trying to steal) and when we got home, she kept saying "Tori outside?" Elizabeth has also progressed well into full sentences, although, I'm having trouble recalling specifics.

All in all, a good week.
