Surviving Camp Moose Creek pt. 4 – And An Overload Of Cute

2 Aug

You guessed it, here’s the fourth installment of the story I’m writing to share with you while my schedule spins at a wonky angle this week.

(Thankfully I only have another two days before the craziness ends and things get back to a more normal schedule. My husband has already declared that Sunday will be a total rest day for me. I’m not arguing. Had a headache since about 11:30 this morning. Grrr. Needless to say, I’m heading for bed the moment this post is scheduled.)

Let me know what you think so far!

Dear Diary,

.

At my breakfast snack shack visit I discovered why the girl wasn’t there yesterday evening. She got braces. They are pink and purple. She says they really hurt, and she hates how they make her look. I told her they aren’t that noticeable. She smiled, winced, and said thanks.

There wasn’t anyone behind me, so I asked her what her name was. Maria.

.

The kid I played soccer with yesterday afternoon said hi to me in the lunch line. Then when I was looking for a quiet corner to hide in, and push my food around, he waved me over to sit at his table.

His name is Devon, and he is here with his twin brother Darron. They don’t look that much alike, but still finish each others sentences. Devon asked if it was OK for his brother to kick around with us that evening. He seemed intelligent, so I acquiesced. A few minutes later another boy came to the table. It turns out his name is Almonzo and his only hobbies are Dungeons and Dragons, and soccer. He also joined us for our evening game.

Playing two on two soccer is a very pleasant was to pass that annoying time between what they call dinner and the campfire torture session. Seemingly endless rounds of Row, Row, Row You Boat could be used as an interrogation technique at Guantanamo.

Now it’s your turn: What should happen next?

Should he get discovered tapping into the WiFi? His cousin leave something strange for him in the hollow log? Should he ask the snack shack girl out for a walk? Lead a revolt during arts and crafts?

Or will aliens attack and steal the soccer ball after vaporizing the mess hall?!?

Now for the cuteness! A baby elephant trying to figure out this whole walking thing.
