Area Resource Enabler. What that means is that we do age-appropriate Bible study with the campers during a pre-arranged block of time in their daily schedule. This year we chose First Campers (1st and 2nd graders) who opted for a short half week on camp. Sunday through Wednesday sounded like a good plan to our daughter as far as introducing Mason and Lucy Ann to a camp experience that only encompassed three and a half days. It was the perfect amount of time; for them and for us. While sowing camp seeds among the youngest of participants during the day I found myself "sEwing" seeds after hours... strawberry seeds; on wool! The handwork on this project has become my latest obsession; it's coming along nicely and will be done before long! It's the perfect portable.
And one final, funny, Masonism. While sharing living space at camp with my grandchildren I found myself closely observed in the mornings when I was getting ready and putting on my "face" for the day. I use an eyelash curler which likely appers to be some sort of archaic torture device to my almost 5 y.o. grandson!
Mason: "Nana, what's that?"
me: "It's an eyelash curler, it curls my lashes before I apply mascara. I place my lashes inside and squeeze it."
Mason: "Oh. Does it hurt?"
me: "No, not at all."
The next day he reached into my makeup pouch and presented the eyelash curler to me with a smile.
"Here, Nana, don't forget to use this" Mason happily prompted.
"Thank you, Mason", I responded, "do you remember what it's for?' I asked.
"Yes," he chirped, "it's the tool for rolling your eye out"!
Life is Good!
