I can't believe this is the last week of camp! The summer is flying by so fast--I can feel the days just slipping through my fingers. Before I know it, we'll be back to school and faced with all kinds of new changes. Andy is starting high school--which terrifies me and Gooser will be starting kindergarten--which just depresses me. So I'm clinging to every last second of summer!!
Our crazy camp does not disappoint--they're going out with a bang this week! Every single day has a theme and the kids are supposed to dress accordingly. Here's what we've got:
Monday--Cowboy and cowgirl day.
Tuesday-- "Crazy hair" day (Gooser will have a fauxhawk, I'll be sure to post pics!).
Thursday--Olympic day (they're supposed to wear red, white and blue).
Friday--Hawaiian beach party day.
So today was Cowboy Day and, of course, I forgot about it until this morning so I was scrambling around searching for anything "cowboy" that's not too hot to wear in the middle of summer. I got lucky and found a cowboy hat--done!
Just to backtrack a little--my oldest son, Andy, starred in his school play this year as Curly (a cowboy) in Oklahoma. Since Gooser (age 5) adores Andy, he went stark-raving Oklahoma along with him and he learned all the songs that Andy sang in the play and even some of the lines! It was pretty cute! The best moment was when I was working out with my trainer in the living room (I have to have a trainer because I'm too lazy to exercise on my own...) and Gooser entered wearing his Black Spiderman costume and Andy's giant cowboy boots and started singing "Surrey With the Fringe on Top." The trainer was like ???.
Anyway, since it was Cowboy Day, Gooser got into Curly mode again and did a few numbers for us. Here is a little clip of him singing Oh What A Beautiful Morning:
Look out, American Idol!
