Thing Two is delighted to report: his tomatoes are ripening, and turning his favorite color!
This week’s theme at preschool was the rainforest, so he made a python (which is sometimes a rattlesnake, when he remembers Camp School) and story pictures, which involved lots of monkeys.
Meanwhile, Thing One is spending the week at Camp Parsons on Hood Canal. When it looked like Thing One would be missing scout camp this year due to our Philmont trip, Troop 125 invited him to join them for their traditional week at Camp Parsons. Later, our troop’s calendar was rearranged and Thing One will be attending Camp Pigott with his own troop later this month after all.
This week promises to be a lot of fun. Camp Parsons provides the scouts with the unique opportunity to camp on a salt water beach, and is one of the oldest scout camps in the USA (established in 1919), so there’s a lot of history and tradition to enjoy participating in. The Gimlet took a few photos when he helped drive the scouts to camp, and if Thing One has time to take any pictures, we’ll add them to the Gimlet Gallery. Watch for Thing One’s report when he returns!
