Carl explains what is really going on in the picture below. The counselor, Gabe, saw the photo lady approaching and gathered up Carl and Jack (Jack is on the left in the picture) for this quick pose. “Carl, Jack, quick, lets muditate!!” As it turns out, Carl was not thinking of a perfectly cooked bone in rib eye. He tells me that giant lollipops were on his mind.
After the mud-fest, the campers normally jump into the Sound to wash off. On this day, the kids were about to hit the showers instead. The counselors said, “No way, you will clog the drain with mud!” So the staff set to washing the group with a hose. After much complaining and bitter cold, the group finally hit the showers and clogged the drains with mud.
Today I must have cleaned a teaspoon of soil from each ear of the boys. I felt bad digging out dirt and rocks with a cotton swab but there was just so much! Perhaps after a week of tub soaks and showers we will get the dirt out. At least the odor does not make my eyes water anymore.
We love having the boys home again.
