More Trophies

Röbert and I got up bright and early this morning to take the drive out to pick Merlin up from Smart Camp (or whatever it is called).  I can’t believe that is his last camp this summer.  Only one more week until our family vacation, though!  I am so excited!

It was hard to decide what to wear for a Saturday award ceremony.  It is camp, so obvioulsy not dressy, but it was in a hotel in a city, so I didn’t want to look like a hick.  I decided to do preppy boho.  Not bad for a mom of three!

I think I look great in hats.

We dropped Starling and Merlin off with Grandmama, who acted surprised, but she always pulls that stuff.  “Oh, you didn’t call me.  I have plans.  Waaah, waaaah waaah.” What are we supposed to do?  Watch our own kids?  What a drama queen.

I had originally planned a day of spa treatments with Krystyn and Cari, so I had a touch of FOMO on the way up, but they sweetly kept texting me.  I guess Cari said something about Krystyn’s botox, which she totally has done on the regular, but which everyone knows you can’t mention to her, early in the day so they were angry with each other all afternoon.  I wish I had been there for that!

Once again, Merlin pretty much swept the awards, and everyone wanted to tell us what a delightful boy he is and so on.  I let everyone know that his sister is the real treat, and they should invite her next year.  I am sure they will.  Everyone seemed so interested in all of my stories about Starling.

This was the big overall award and he kept saying , "I can't believe I won it!"  Okay, enough Mr. Show-off!

I let Ty know that we could keep Dementor for as long as he needed us to, since his house might not be safe right now and he thanked me, of course.  He said that he was stopping by Renata’s place to pick up his stuff from her brother on the way home, and he’d come by for Dementor tomorrow.

How sad.  It sounded like his engagement didn’t work out.  Maybe next time he will choose a better person.
