Camp McGuire

After a rough firstday, Flopsy enjoyed the next day much more!

Dear Mommy,

I love you, and miss you. Life here at camp is so much fun. My counselors are Audrey and Megan!

I have a new friend, his name is Thor. Thor is big and snores a lot but I like him, his counselor is Adrian. We play a game called ‘The Couches are Lava’. If you get on one they take you off, so the flames are extinguished! We play it easy so all the couches are lava but our beds are safe.

We don’t know when mess hour is but usually it’s after Audrey gets home both times . Audrey leaves a lot but it might be a surprise for me… Or it might be to feed the animals across the street, but I don’t know and I won’t ask.

It has been snowing here a lot. My biggest problem is that it is very cold out.The camp is very nice and warm and I like it a lot.

I am learning lots of new things like obeying, reading, and writing. Maybe I can get my hair dyed red like Audrey and maybe it will turn pink, I like pink a lot! I hope you are cool there and make sure you drink a lot of lemonade.

Love you a lot,

Flopsy

Babysitting Flopsy

This month we are babysitting Flopsy (Oma’s dog). She is white and small. We are making up stories about Flopsy with just a little bit of truth in them.  Here is the first note that “Flopsy” wrote to Oma.

Dear Mommy,

I love you! These weeks without you have been soooo long. Audrey leaves a lot and I miss her, I whine hoping she will come back faster but they don’t like it. They also don’t let me on couches, they scold me when I get on one. At night when I go out Audrey puts me on a leash because I decided to take a walk on my own one night.  She did not like having to come look for me at their neighbors.

Their big dog is mean. He eats my food when I don’t touch it for a while, he sometimes drinks my water too! They put me in a cage when they leave but Thor (their dog) gets to roam around, it’s just not fair.

Mommy please! please! please! Get me out of here! Get back soon! Otherwise I might starve to death! But it’s time for bed now mommy.

Goodnight mommy.

Love;

Flopsy

Alpaca Shearing

Angora Goat

Yesterday, We helped our neighbors, the Beers, shear their alpacas; another family showed up with their angora goats. This year I swept the pads and brought in the alpacas. Megan took in Finn, she likes him a lot. The goats took three times as long as the alpacas.

We had fun and hope to do it next year.

Dog and Fish (and frog!) Sitting

FrogThis week we sat a dog, about 80 fish and some frogs (No we did not sit on them. Or make them sit.). The dog’s name is Black Jack. We liked to try to catch the frogs a lot of times. One frog is named Super Frog because Audrey tried to catch it and it jumped on her arm, then on the rocks, then the rocks another time, and finally the water.

We had lots of fun. This week we are also babysitting our Oma’s and Opa’s dog, Flopsy.
