Camp MeMe Day 3

Days 2 & 3 of Camp MeMe 2009 have flown by. Day 2 (Sunday) we went to Sunday School & church at First Baptist Emmet. The boys have been there numerous times now, and are known by most of the folks, so I didn't even announce their presence. Then it was lunch at the Eagles Nest and home for the afternoon and evening. The boys baked a delicious loaf of bread and later played a spirited game of baseball in the backyard, big brother Wylie winning 20-7. Little brother Miles hated losing; good for him!

While I worked from 7 to 3 today, they had lots of other fun activities, including making clay whistles from scratch. After a delicious supper of fried chicken and roasted corn on the cob, we went swimming at the Ouachita Baptist University pool. One wall is almost covered by All-America certificates the Tiger Sharks have won. Maybe one or both of these boys will win one someday!

MeMe offers some encouragement.
Wylie is already a great swimmer.
Miles loves the water, too.

Camp MeMe - Day 1

Last summer we instituited a new tradition at our house -- Camp MeMe: a week of real camp-like experiences and adventures for our grandchildren. The first one was so much fun we decided (a) to have a 2nd annual Camp MeMe this summer; and (b) to only have one Camp MeMe per year!

So far, grandsons Wylie and Miles are the only campers; and so far, that's all we can handle! We hope to have more campers in the future. (Hint, hint!)

Today, on Day 1 of Camp MeMe 2009, my employment prevented me from accompanying MeMe to pick up the campers, but daughter Judea went along to help, and the first Camp MeMe activity was to tour the Arkansas Territorial Restoration in Little Rock. MeMe will have pictures on her blog.

Once the campers arrived here, they lost no time in diving in to some free time fun in their room ... after, of course, we had posted the colors and said the pledge of alleigiance. Camp MeMe has begun!

It's Fun to be a Boy

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Here are six of the thousand this picture says -- it's FUN to be a BOY!
