Lundi's Letter From Camp Tanglewood

Dear Mom,
I made only two friends. Haili and Rissa. It started out pretty bad. I was so nervous that I dumped my water on my plate. I took some pictures and played a card game called Spit. The camp nurse is really nice. Rissa and Haili are like me. Kinda shy and picky and brave. And we all like swimming. And of course, in my cabin there is a bratty girl. I love you.

I have been splitting my time among four kids instead of six this week. Lundi and Harrison are away at camp. Things have been pretty quiet around here. I have noticed, though, that I feel much more relaxed. I find myself being more deeply engaged in the affairs of the four that are home. I feel like I have so much more time to spend with them individually. The dynamics drastically change when there are just two missing. Caleb keeps saying that he is glad to have a vacation from Harrison.

"I do not ask for any crown
But that which all may win;
Nor try to conquer any world
Except the one within."

Guess Who Left This Morning?

And guess who we already miss a whole, whole bunch?
xoxoxoxox Nae Nae. Love you.


Baby Baby

You can eat them and squeeze them and they don't get mad if you kiss their cheek ten million times a day. They don't even care if you are in a bad mood, don't take a shower or are late on paying the bills. They never complain about the milk and always understand when you just want to snuggle them up and breath them in. They always have intoxicatingly sweet breath and never think you are weird if you smell it. They are your biggest fans, your littlest loves and the greatest of Gods gifts.
I'm going to go kiss my sleeping baby now.
