Dear Mom and Dad,
I am hanging out at Camp Nana this Sunday… it is fall, and football season is underway. Here in Michigan… it is great if you are a college football fan, Michigan, Michigan State etc. , but how about those Lions… I may be only 9 months old… but … even I know… when the opposing team gets more than 40 points… well, it just can’t be good. Not unless the Lions did too, and that was not happening. Nana says she needs Daddy’s help. The campers all pick who they think will win, and last year, Uncle Nick could help Nana, since he was in the South Pacific, this year Nana is on her own.. AND SHE PICKED THE LIONS TO WIN… DOES THAT TELL YOU ANYTHING. Any way… Nana- not a football fan… just playing with the campers…. I am surprised she doesn’t make them all sing the anthem before a game… ha…. but tell daddy she picked daddy’s Chargers for Monday night to win! It is all in fun, Great Aunt Pam and Great Uncle Brian play too… just to see if anyone can keep up with Uncle Brian whose middle name is “Mr. Football” . No body wins anything, they all just try to see if they can guess more games correctly than Uncle Brian… personally, if you ever met great Uncle Brian, he is one tall dude… and just as a little note to self… WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO MAKE THE BIG GUY MAD? I bet I would vote LIONS every time… just to make sure he had the best picks! I bet that is Nana’s strategy too.
Life at camp keeps me busy. I felt better today, but still have a nose full. I hate that suction thingy! CAN I MAIL IT TO YOU, I bet it would work wonders on sand boogies. For me, it’s a big point of contention… HATE IT! Now I know… it is just there to help me, but boy oh boy… do I despise it. Maybe if I hide my nose…
Here I am just thinking maybe someone is going to use that nose thingy on me..
Nah, really I was just chompin at my hand… anything and everything these days… gnaw, gnaw, gnaw…
I was playing with my Gymboree Jimbo the Clown Nana got me…. I love him, he is so bright and colorful. He is a puppet… and yes, Nana makes him sing. (IDEA! Hey, maybe if we tell Uncle Brian, that the winner gets to have Nana sing to them at the end of the season… well that may give the other campers a chance …? )
I enjoyed playing today. I dream of the day we play together. Nana shows me your pictures every day. She shows me one of daddy making a silly face, and I smile at it. It is so silly.
I am so adorable , aren’t I?
Now that I traveled to the Pacific Northwest, and to Northern Michigan…. summer has pretty much ended… and I am nearly over this teething cold thingy…. I am going to work on getting back to Goldfish Mini Swim class, and waiting on your visit. I may not be able to go swimming this week if I am not in tip top shape… but we will see. Nana is all about the stay home and rest thing. I was to have a field trip to visit Great Grandma Sharyn and Papa this weekend for Aunt Arri’s birthday… but no fun Nana, said… NO. Hmmm, imagine that. I could have shared my cold with everyone… it could have been fun! But no… she says no mini swim class either cause Maddie, Etta and all my buds don’t want this awful cold in the nose thingy! Oh joy… maybe we will stay at camp and ‘sing camp songs’. Or maybe someone will have a frog in her throat (she does have a cold you know) …. and take a sabbatical!
I hope you and daddy are doing well and had a decent day. I will write you tomorrow and tell you about my day at CAMP QUARANTINE. Until then, I am your Little Miss Adorable, your daughter,
