Camp Clair 2010

Camp Clair is over for the year...my house is going to seem quiet without four pairs of feet running around from the living room to the porch back to the living room and then outside. No one asking "Clair, can I ...?" or one child yelling another child's name. It is lots of fun, but I can tell when it is time for them to go home because one or more find something to do alone instead of joining in the chaos or someone tells one of their cousin's to quit being so bossy. When I asked them what they liked about Camp Clair there were lots of answers-making books, going to Grandpa's, going to the museum, making pictures. I think some of them would want to stay forever if they didn't miss their parents.

On another note, I am not much for pictures of me, but my sister Amanda took this picture of us on our birthday earlier this week. We celebrate together most years...don't think it is the same any other way. This year we went out for lunch at Baja Sol. For supper we had grilled hamburgers, but that is almost a given for the fourth of July. We had ice cream a couple times too.

It was fun celebrating with you! You are right...it just isn't the same when we don't. :) thanks for hosting camp Clair...my kids had a blast. When I asked them what their favorite part was, Zach said "All of it!".

Ahhh... what a great picture; you can sure tell you are related! I know I have mentioned before what a GREAT idea I think "Camp Clair" is. If more aunts could be like you. I bet the parents enjoyed a little breather too. Bravo!

Like the photo.

I can imagine the sound of those four pairs of feet running from room to room... I'm sure Grandpa and Uncle Wayne like the visit during Camp Clair.

How fun! Something the kids will remember when they are older. Too bad we don't live closer and you could have another attendee. ;)
