Miss Tizz turned 7 on Thursday, so we did the family party last weekend, the cupcake thing for school on Thursday, dinner at McDonald's Thursday night (the birthday person gets to choose - at least she picked one with a cafe), and a movie party with school friends on Friday night (with far too much snack bar food - those kids can inhale popcorn!).
And then last night Guides had a *camp* at Questacon - her first ever night away from us. I helped out with setting up and serving supper for 153 Guides, and I thought at one stage that Miss Tizz wasn't going to stay - she was complaining of a bad stomach ache and feeling sick, but I think it may have been (understandable) anxiety about something new. By the time we'd finished cleaning up and I was ready to go, however, she'd recovered and opted to stay.
I arrived to pick her up about 8am, and it was a struggle extracting her from the place! She had a great time, slept well (although not enough - check out the black under her eyes!), and is far less anxious about the school overnight camp coming up later in the year. Which is a great relief to me ...
One question though - why do sleeping bags never fit back into the bag properly?
