Mom & Me Camp

We got back from Mom & Me Camp at Camp Greenville on Wednesday and I think it's taken until today for me to recoup. It wore me out and I'm pretty sure that it wore Hughes out, too. We had a fantastic time. Hughes was really brave and did things that were beyond his comfort level (riding a horse, canoeing) and he loved them. It was so nice to have 3 days alone with Hughes to see him in his element of making new friends, learning new games and not having the little brothers tag-along.

Our partners in crime - Ashley & Grayson Me & Hughes

During rest time for the kids, the moms got to go do the zip line. I loved it!

The boys' side of the cabin - (bottom up) Elliott, Jack, Hughes, Charlie, Tradd & Thomas

Before we went canoeing. Hughes was a little nervous and saying he didn't want to do it. I had to convince the lifeguard to give us a push and that he would be fine. Once we got out there, he loved it and we went exploring for turtles.

Doing a little fishing.

At roll call at the flag pole before dinner. Katie, our counselor, was lining them up. That's Grayson, Betsy, Hughes, Tradd, Thomas & Harper in line.

Peyton, Hughes & Grayson
Sneaky Ninja Night - the kids participated in their own scavenger hunt that ended with them using their ninja skills on BlackBeard the Pirate to steal their ninja stars back.
The kids loved it!

And, then my camera broke. Soooo, I'll return in a few days with pictures from Ashley's camera. Guess Santa will be coming early to the Holman household :)
