Peter made it home from camp on Saturday morning. I swear, he grew two inches while he was gone!
As soon as he walked in the door, he started talking about camp and he hasn't stopped yet! Just ask his two uncles, former Scouts themselves, who called to find out if he enjoyed himself. He would still be talking to them if we hadn't forced him off the phone.
He proudly reported that he took a (a, as in one) shower while he was gone. He took it on Wednesday night. He said he figured that was the middle of the week and would be good enough. Suprisingly, he wasn't too filthy when he got home and he didn't stink.
But the laundry! I did three very large loads when he got home and everything was dirty, muddy, dusty, damp, and brown.
He earned five merit badges at camp. One was leather work and one was basketry. I figured these would be two of his least favorite sessions but he said he really enjoyed them. Although he did say in order to earn the merit badges you had to finish up your projects back at your campsite and that was a little stressful for him. But he managed to complete his projects.
The basket on the right is the first one he did. And it shows. The one beside it was his second project and it is definitely better than the first. The stool was his third and final weaving project and it turned out really well!
The leather knife pouch and the paracord bracelet were projects from his leather works session.
I'm glad he had a great time but I'm glad he's back home!
