The boys have been in camp two full weeks now. Week one was definitely a period of adjustment. This is Matty’s first time in “big boy camp”, at a new camp with new people and new surroundings, and he had tantrums pretty much every day at drop-off. The counselors informed us that he didn’t want to leave his brother’s side, and didn’t want to participate in activities with his age group.
Last week was better. He has a strong temper, so we know how we gets if he doesn’t get his way, but he was more flexible regarding group activities and has made his own friends now. He still prefers to hang out wherever his brother is, but he knows that can’t be the case all the time.
They love field trip days. The first week they went to the movies to see Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer (they said it was great!). Last week they went to Dave & Busters, and both came home with extra large stuffed animals (great…). Tomorrow they are off to an all-day trip to the water park. I’m so glad that they are enjoying themselves!
