Camp Lindy

Last semester I watched a 9 year old girl named Bridget after school. We did all kinds of fun things together, and it was the best job ever. Last week I took the day off of my real job, and did fun things with Bridget and her friend Sydney. It was awesome.  (Going in at night to catch up on my "real" work= not as awesome. But oh well.)

They called it "Camp Lindy". And there was even a sign they made that proclaimed: "Camp Lindy Rocks!!" Has a nice ring to it, yes? 

One day we made home made whole wheat bread, butter and cherry jam:

Another day we packed up some books and lunch, and built a fort in the woods:

Another day we explored Wakulla Springs, and grilled our food. With fire! By ourselves! And we saw a manatee,  which has been my personal goal for the past 8 years I've lived in Florida. Check that one off the list! It was a cute. And kind of looked like a floating rock.

We stopped by McDonalds and picked up some Ketchup packets on our way to the Spring.
I told the girls to "act casual" when we walked in. They did.  It was hilarious.
And finally we got dressed up in our fanciest clothes, did our hair and make up, and went to fancy plantation house for brunch.

I loved spending time with my favorite nine year olds this week. Seriously, these girls are so sweet and fun.

Tomorrow it'll be back to the office bright and early. I simply can't wait.

You are so much fun! I wish I had a camp Lindy when I was 9. Or even today.

Can we just quit our jobs and have Camp Lindy all the time?

I agree with Tanya we just all need to have a Camp Lindy Week that would be so awesome!

haha--I'm totally okay with that! We can make t-shirts! Camp Lindy is in tents? Anyone?
