We took Tinkerbell down to Grandma/Grandpa’s house.  Tink
was a little nervous and peed in her car carrier.

Once she got to Grandma’s she was fine.

Thank goodness Tinkerbell is a patient, even tempered cat.

Little Lady loves to pick her up.

Tinkerbell just takes it all in stride.

P&T came over.  As always, the kids came over and everyone
had a great time.

Day 5 (Thank goodness, says Mom)

The girls actually got to swim today.  (go figure)

These are all of the girls from Mom’s troop that went to camp.

Little Lady was just pooped….

The last hike of camp.  All of the girls (and their gripey moms)
take the long walk back to buses and home.

Day 4 of Girl Scout Camp.

A girl threw up in the pool earlier in the day.  The pool
was closed to clean it up.

Once again, the mom’s were pissed.  (yes, I definately see a pattern)

Fortunately, they had a few other things, like the climbing wall.

Little Lady was the first to climb up the wall.  She was one of the
fastest and not every girl could do it.

Her baseball awards banquet was also Thursday.  I picked her
up from camp and went to the banquet.

They had pizza and two bouncer houses.  Little Lady was in heaven.
Then they had the last baseball game of the year.  She had three solid hits.

I took her back to Girl Scout camp because…

Getting ready for lights out!

Thursday night was the overnight “camp” out in a cabin.  (really, do you
want to make 32 1st graders suffer in a tent?)

LL was pooped.

Day 3: Girl Scout Camp

Behind them is the pool.

The girls had their swimsuits on, feet and the water and BOOM!

There was one crack of Thunder.  Pool rules, you have to get out
of the pool with a crack of thunder.  The girls missed their window
of time to swim.

Even though it never rained that day, the girls did not get to swim.

Again, the moms were pissed. (do you see a pattern here?)

Day 2: Little Lady’s troop helped deliver the colors in the morning.
(you have to work fashion, even when you are doing your civic duty)

They had a science lab at girl scout camp.  Here, LL made goop.

Little Lady is so focused and intense, she would make an excellent scientist.
(as long as she could dress in nothing but a smock)

Little Lady loved to talk about this at home.  Supposedly, if you drop this
in with a plant, it will water the plant for you.  (or at leat keep it from
drying up)

July 26 First Day of Girl Scout Camp

Day 1 of Girl Scout Camp.

It took a while for the girls to get their swimsuits on, then they had
to get the rules of the pool, then some had to take a swim test.

At that point, they ran out of time and pool time was over.

The mom’s were pissed.

July 25… night

Always something….

Little Lady has a really bad ear ache.  Mom has been
putting in some special drops twice a day.  It seems
to be helping.

Grandma and Grandpa came up for the weekend!

We took them to Chuckie Cheese. 
 (only the finest for our relatives) 

Chuckie Cheese has a new,  huge Operation game.

Tinkerbell loves to lounge on couch.  She is so cute!

And so patient.  (Little Lady loves to pick up Tinkerbell, and Tink is
never swats at her)
