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

Periodic Table of the Cookies

For school I had to make a Periodic Table of the Cookies, it was fun!

We made some sugar cookies and cut them out with an doughnut hole maker, then we baked them. When they were done I frosted them with color codes. The blank cookies are elements that have been discovered but have not found enough to really prove that they found it.

We shared some and ate some. We gave our neighbors who have alpacas named after Star Wars characters Po(Potassium), and some other ones that sound like Star Wars names.

We have eaten all the cookies, and they were good! Maybe we can make some more soon.

Making a Rope

On Saturday we went to Five Medals and made a rope. It was easy, once we learned how.

Audrey, Megan, and I made the rope. There were two crank machines. They were a board nailed to another board that we stood on, the cranks are attached to hooks with some string on it. There was also a thing that looks like a mallet with four valleys. First Audrey cranked her crank, it had four hooks on it. I think it was to twist the string, then once that was done Megan took the mallet and walked slowly while I turned the rope. My thing had one hook and was to twist all of them together. When we where done they took small pieces and tied it so it would not fall apart.

We had a lot of fun at Five Medals, I hope to go again next year!

 

Bubble

For Andrea’s birthday we went to the park. We played with bubbles while the food was cooking, Mom took pictures of us. Here is one of me in a bubble.

Canoeing

Yesterday we went canoeing. We went on the Elkhart river, from Shanklen Park to Ox Bow Park. Oma and Opa rented the canoes. It was fun, Mark and I shared a canoe. The river was fun, some parts were hard but fun. After that we had a party at Oma’s and Opa’s house for the 4 of July!

 

Second Soccer Game

On Monday I had a soccer game, we had a tie 4-4. The team we were playing against was good.

We have a game today at 6:30 at Goshen College. We will be on field 5 on the opposite side of the bleachers.
