Camp is catching up with Spark. Yesterday when he got home he seemed tired but was so whipped up with excitement and telling us all about his last couple of days that it was late when he got to bed. This morning we were up early to go into town for an appointment and to check some errands off our to-do list. By the time we got to the last stop, a green house, he said he would just sit on the bench and wait for us. I came back up to the front of the green house and said there was a play set in the back if he wanted to go play on it. He went back there to check it out. After we picked out all the plants we were going to get, everything was buy one get one, I went back to the play set to tell Spark we were ready to check out. I found him laying in the play house part looking like he was just about to fall asleep. On the way home in the car he did fall asleep.
When we got home he went right in his room and lay down. A little bit later he came out and put on a movie he got from the Red Box. Red Box is a vending machine with movies in it that you can rent for $1.00 a night. It is the closest thing to a video store that we have near us and it's ten miles away. He watched the first few minutes of the movie and was fast asleep in the chair. He woke up after the movie was over. Then he went in his room again and lay down. I went out to mow some lawn about 6:30 p.m. thinking that he just had a nap and so he wouldn't fall asleep. When I came in at 9:00 p.m. he was asleep again. I wanted him to get up, one so he could eat some dinner and two so that he would be able to sleep tonight. I don't think I will have to worry about him sleeping tonight as he is wrapped up in his comforter on the living room floor again and I hear deep breathing.
Three days at camp - three days to catch up on all the sleep you didn't get at camp. Glad camp is only once a year.
