Morning dawns at Peffley's Wilderness Camp

Bye, bye bachelor life

Tomorrow (6/23) will officially signal the end of the early season bachelor life for me as the "estrogen invasion" is on it's way. The three girls (Megan, Emily and Allison) are travelling with friends and are scheduled to arrive tomorrow. Milissa and Sara will also be arriving this week, but have been delayed just a little by a huge power outage back home. In any event the power has been restored and they will be on the road to camp soon.

This (despite my jokes about swimming in the estrogen pool) signals a joyous time in camp as our family is reunited and the kids all look forward to seeing their buddies in camp who's families vacation with us annually. They look forward to re-connecting with their camp friends and spending a week with new friends most every week.  I can remember being so concerned about keeping the girls entertained in the wilderness of Canada when the camp was first purchased. Those concerns were alleviated by then end of their first day in camp nearly six years ago.

It is refreshing to see them in camp and finding ways to entertain themselves and learn about the nature and wildlife here, as opposed to the homelife of TV, Wii games and text messaging. Now if I can just find a way to keep the boys out of the picture for the next 20 years or so. Hmmmm.................
