The camp had so much for us to do! The boys enjoyed every new experience.
….Like rock climbing
(Of course it was hard for the boys to get past the part about the horses pooping. “What? Bodily functions are involved? Alright!”)
We also got to go to a wolf preserve called Mission:Wolf. They talked to us about how the wolves communicate, and how to act around them to show them that you are their friend. The boys did a really good job being calm with the wolves and listening to directions.(which may or may not have been influenced by my telling of Little Red Riding Hood on the way to the preserve. Ha! Not really. But not a bad idea.) They actually got to go in the area where the wolves live (I stayed outside just in case Sylvia looked too much like a pup.). They were instructed to show the wolves their teeth, and….
Lots of snuggle time.
On the final night they have a banquet night. Everyone dresses up and we were served a four course meal. yummmm. The boys were excited because I got them their own ties like Brian wears.
We had a really great week. The boys had a lot of fun, and it was nice to get to spend so much time as a family. Next year I think we may try to get to the last week of camp which is specifically for adoptive and foster families. It would be neat to get to build relationships with others who have similar experiences. I’m hoping that experiences like this end up being treasured memories for our kids. I hope that the boys never forget it, and that they remember it as ‘family camp’ where they really felt loved as family should.
