Summer Camp

I can't believe it's the middle of July already!! Summer has been going so quick!! I signed the boys up for Camp at the Toddler Gym where they have been taking classes. The gym closes for the summer, expect for 3 one week sessions of Camp. So they are going to attend a July session and an August session. It consists of going every day for 1 week from 9:30-11:30. On the last day they go 9:30-12:30 and bring a lunch. They play games, sing songs, make crafts and have snack. Today was the first day and the two hours literally flies by for me! But, they loved it!!

They were so excited to get there. I had to stop for gas on the way and Cenzo was having a fit, telling me "Hurry, we are going to be late!" How does he even know what that means???

I just cant get over how old they seem this summer. They will be 3 September 1st. And what a difference this year has made. Now when we go to the park or beach, I can actually sit on a chair or blanket and relax a bit while I watch them play. And they have friends!! Their own friends, not just kids that they know through me and my friends. During their gym class last spring they met this boy, Nick. He is like the Prom King of Toddler Class. He is the kids all the other children search out and everyone wants to be his friend. Luckily, his mom is so nice and very funny. So we have gotten to know each other a bit and coincidentally found out we were high school classmates, small world. Gym class has been on break for a month so the boys keep asking when are they going back and where is Nick??? Last week Cenzo begged me to call Nick's mom so I did and we made a plan to get the kids together along with a few others form class. We met up at a local park and everyone really had a blast.

Today, the boys went to Camp and none of their friends had signed up for this session. So they made all new friends. In August, 5 or 6 of the boys they have become friends with will be at the Camp too. But, I am glad it doesn't stop them from enjoying themselves today. They ran right in and didn't look back at me. Hopefully they will be just as excited tomorrow!

  1. It's so hard to believe that our tiny little babies are so big and that they have their own friends already!
    I love this age they are so much fun now, but I still miss the baby baby days.
