For two weeks, our nine year old is going to the local camp at the college. She has been going now for several years, as it is a time for her to spend with her cousin and keep busy during the day. I have mixed feelings about her going - I don't mind her being here, but she enjoys being with the kids her age.
This year, she gets "bumped up" to the next older group - since she will be in 4th grade this year. Before we get to camp today, she announces. "Uh, you don't need to walk me in today."
Are we into the age of being embarrassed by parents?
She ain't seen nothing yet, just wait til I get my swim cap with the flowers on it and start working on my somersaults in the pool.
