Camp

Soon after we decided to send Vivi to kindergarten at our neighborhood public school, we learned that the school was offering a four-week summer camp.  We figured this would be a great opportunity for her to make some new friends, get used to the building, and have some fun.  Plus, at $50 a week for full-day camp, we couldn't exactly scoff at the price.  In fact, I believe my exact words were, "You're going to take my kid for eight hours a day, five days a week, and charge me $50.  Are you shitting me?"

Anyway, do you want to know what Vivi learned at camp yesterday?

Sure you do.

She learned about George Washington.
She learned how to fly a kite.  (Literally-- not the figurative way I taught her.)
She learned that cacti live in the desert in the Southwestern United States. 

And... she learned the word pussy.  (I'm not talking about cats here.)

I guess you get what you pay for.

  2. Lol...sorry, I couldn't help but laugh a little at this story. Call me a terrible parent, but for $50/week and all that positive learning (the first few things you listed), I'd still send my kids in a heartbeat. I can talk to them about appropriate language as needed (and I'm willing to bet the adults at camp will too).

  4. I think profanity is a required part of the curriculum here in MA. Usually they wait until driver's ed, though...
