Things I learned at camp

First day of camp!

Caleb and Connor started Zion Nature camp this week. I don't know who was more excited: the boys or me? Don't get me wrong, summer has been a lot of fun, but having two boys in camp for three hours a day does bring a smile to my face.

Caleb waltzed into the camp with no hesitations (after all animals are his passion)! Connor's entrance was a wee bit meeker and with much reservation. Despite his qualms, we bid the boys adieu and exited the nature center.

Three hours later we retrieved the boys. I asked Teresa, the camp counselor, about the boys' morning. She recounted Connor's reluctance to join the camp, but added that Caleb eased the transition with encouraging words and supportive gestures.

I thought about that later. How happy I am that they have each other. When Connor was born I imagined how the two would interact later in life. At that time, I envisioned a day like today when an older brother brings comfort to a little brother just by being there.
