My faith is a tiny bit tested

I received the following e-mail from my daughter's camp:

"The buses rolled in just after dinner and campers and counselors headed off for their first campfire. Summertime must be here as we hear singing, reading and laughing echoing across the meadows.

We and our staff are excited to greet campers for another great summer at [not your house*].

Thank you for entrusting us with your children...we look forward to offering them a summer of friendship, learning and new experiences.


[The strangers who have your child*]"

I know this is supposed to be reassuring, but I am very worried about this claim that they can hear the children reading. Not physically possible. So is all the rest a big lie, too?

Must now make oatmeal cookies and calm down.

  1. Sharon,
    Maybe it's one of those Jane Austen moments and they're reading aloud to each-other. Picture them all sitting around the campfire (optional candelabra) as she reads Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Glad she's having fun. It was great to see you all.
    Betz and the gang

  2. You are such a nice person to think of this. Me? Going with the Steven King version.
