Last Week of Summer Camp

This week’s camp is the longest one yet – 9am to 3pm.  Monday morning B said, “WOW!  Six whole hours doing the same thing!  I don’t think I’ve ever done that before!”  Ah, the mentality of a homeschooler – I love it!  “Yes you have,” I replied.  “First grade.”  (B went to public school for kindergarten and 1st grade.)  He was so excited for this camp, acting camp, until we walked in the door.  Dun, dun, DUUUUUN!  There was a LEGO camp going on at the same time and in the same facility as B’s acting camp.  “Wha…?  LEGOs?!?!”  He stared, open-mouthed at the long table covered in LEGOs and the boys and girls on either side of it.  Then he looked forlornly at me.  “Hey, I didn’t know this was going on, either.  But you wanted acting camp, you were excited all morning for acting camp, so let’s get over to the acting side and you can play with LEGOs when you get home.”  “OK,” he replied, and off he went.  He’s so hard to please!  ;o)

He had a great time!  Auditions were in the afternoon for 2 different plays and B is happy with his parts in both (the plays are comedies).  The first play takes place at a retirement home.  B is a 90 yr old man, with dementia, who thinks he’s Hamlet.  B loves the Shakespearian language his character uses!  The second play is about King Arthur and B is Merlin!  I can’t wait to see his performances this afternoon; my parents are going with me.  I’ll let you know how it goes!

Let me know what you're thinking.
