Enjoying life at Camp Chinqueka

Today marks the end of our third week of summer camp, and man has it flown by!  It’s hard to believe that camp is already almost half way done, but then again it always tends to fly by very quick.

I am glad to report that both Sophia and Sawyer are really enjoying themselves here at Chinqueka.  Sophia a full-fledged camper this year and is in Cabin 1.  She was very proud of herself on the first day of camp as she showed Beth, myself, and anybody else who would listen her bunk full of all of her stuff.  Beth and I have tried to be kind of hands off as much as we can so she can enjoy a real camp experience without her pesky mom and dad butting in.  Normally she does her own thing, but she does stop by our cabin every once in a while to check in.

My nickname for Sawyer is the “Prince of Chinqueka.”  He has turned into quite the ladies man!  Pretty much every girl at camp, both camper and counselor, go up to him to ask if he knows their name.  I am impressed he is able to remember as many as he does!

Sawyer and his nanny, April, get to run around camp and do pretty much whatever they want.  April is especially good at catching bugs, frogs, salamanders, and other various animals for Sawyer.

We have been splitting up our days off between relaxing around camp and going to Boston to visit Beth’s family.  Yesterday we spent a day off at an indoor trampoline park called Flight.  Needless to say, nobody in our family bounces on a trampoline very often, so it was a fun experience to jump around and try some flips.

We only have a few weeks of camp before we have to go back to the real world.  Part of me is ready to be a normal person again.  But then again, I know it won’t take long before I’m wishing to be back at Camp Chinqueka again!
