Campers registering for Fall Classes….Time Passing!
Hello Mom and Dad,
Today at camp we took it easy, as tomorrow is a BIG GOLDFISH MINI DAY! Me and my Goldfish Mini Partner are going back for a swim class and I wanted to be rested. I am still teething … and really, I am experiencing totally terrible teething time, little princess’ get to have, like a little fever, a little crankiness, yes, I said cranky, but with good cause, two little teeth are making their way through at the same time. I can go from happy to angry in seconds… and back to happy again providing Nana is silly enough. I am hoping the first two are the hardest… and the rest of these little things will come in a bit easier… or that I will just get used to it…who knows?
Today, I was a ray of sunshine in an otherwise dull day. Nana’s kids, all the Aunties and Uncle are preparing for fall. (yes, I will say it, SCHOOL!) We have a huge schedule at camp and it shows what times everyone works, or has class, five in college full time, and me….. with my camp stuff like appointments, or swim class and other ‘SOCIAL’ engagements I’ve had, or plan to have. Believe me, I have had a bunch, I mean, first there have been my regular ‘FRIDAYS ARE FUNDAYS’ with GG-ma and Great Papa. Then things like brunch or dinners with Nana and Poppy and the campers, places like Ms. Sydney’s, or Ms. Pat or Ms. Sandy’s. What about that I was at a picnic at Grandpa Ray’s one week or Great Uncle Dave’s another! Baseball games and all kinds of other stuff that make a princess need a calendar! We don’t say Camp/Zoo Nana for nothing… ya know… it is truly an interesting place. Poppy alone needs computers to schedule all over town and doing a bazillion things. Uncle Nick who had not gotten back from the South Pacific in time to take the LSAT, is in Culinary Arts School and preparing for the LSAT. Aunt Mikayla is starting her senior year as a History major, with an English minor, and hopes to begin student teaching after this fall, but is taking 16 credits per semester. Aunt Alyx is beginning her third year of pre medicine/biology classes, and will be preparing for taking the MCAT next year, while taking 16 credit hours per semester as well. Aunt Allyssa is entering cosmetology school in the fall and continuing her studies in journalism as a Sophomore at the university as well – and will be taking classes at both schools, with Aunt Arrianna beginning as a freshman she too is taking 16 credit hours per semester. Each in different classes at different times through the day from 9 in the morning until 10 at night. All the campers are working too… and Nana trys to keep track for packing them lunches, or making dinners for them to eat on the run or between work and school. THE CALENDAR IS COLOR CODED, AND LETS JUST SAY… it’s a crazy RAINBOW! Nana says it will all make my time here go by faster for me. Taking care of getting it all together, well that is what we did today, we had to drop off forms, and finalize schedules, register for classes, and all kinds of school related stuff. Things you and daddy will be doing with me before you know it. Imagine, me on my first school bus…registering for classes… choosing a career, WOW. There are so many things we have to look forward to. These days it may be hard for both of you to think about anything other than missing me, but STOP, BECAUSE I PLAN TO MAKE UP FOR LOST TIME WHEN YOU COME HOME. I do!
I think everyone here in Michigan… and those that read my love letters are trying to help me pass the time… as quickly as possible – so that we come to the day when we see each other again. Nana used to say to mommy when I was but a ‘bun in the oven’… that every ultrasound, or doctor visit was a “meet and greet“. A chance for us to get to know each other before our surprise Dec. 4th date! I love ‘meet and greet’s’. They give me a chance to win over new happy faces… everywhere I go… people smile at me, and say… “GUGE YOU’RE ADORABLE”. I think to myself… if you think I’m good lookin’ you should see Mr. Griff… now there is an adorable face… not! (A FACE THAT ONLY NANA WOULD BE SILLY ENOUGH TO LOVE!) I know I have written this several times before… BUT YES… Mr. Griff STILL SERIOUSLY DROOLS, AND YES… HE desparately NEEDS DOGGY BREATH-SAVERS… but I am not certain that an entire package of ANY KIND OF breath-savers could actually do what they claim! THERE MAY BE – NO SAVING HIS BREATH… but I – am not one to complain….really. We all love the Griffmeister anyway!
I am counting the days until we see each other again, and really I go week to week…. a few days at a time, but have put on my website a countdown to our VISIT AROUND MY BIRTHDAY, and of course AN ESTIMATED TIME of your return to me… (IF PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS August 2010… THEN I’LL BELIEVE HIM AND HOPE FOR SOONER)!
I will write you tomorrow of news from the land of many lakes and beautiful green trees, WHERE SUMMER IS TOTALLY AWESOME AND I LOVE BEING OUT WHEN THE WIND BLOWS THROUGH THE TREES. Close your eyes tonight and dream of me, your little pot of gold, your ray of sunshine, and the day you can stroll me outside and feel the breeze together. You may feel a lot of breeze according to Nana, because she says, you’ll be running to keep up with me… while I explore and keep you on your toes! Until tomorrow, I am as always, your Little Miss Adorable, your daughter, Guillianna!
