Moomin: This camp is GREAT! This is the best camp ever! They had Honey Nut Cheerios!!
Me: Hahahaha! Awesome! Hahahaahah!
Moomin: AND they had raisins.
Me: No way. Hahahaha. Raisins!
Moomin: Yes! At the first snack time before the aftercare they also had Cheezits!
Moomin: Oh! I get it.
Me: Heehehehehehe
Moomin: You’re laughing because I sort of should be talking about the Marine Science part of the camp. And not the snacks.
Me: You are correct, my son. I do love good snacks. On the other hand did not pay freaking four hundred bucks for you to attend Snack Camp.
Moomin: Well, let me tell you about the sort of British things. They’re very tiny and live in salt ponds. I think, sort of British, but not really…
Me: Brine shrimp?
Moomin: YES! Sea monkeys! I learned about the ecology of estuaries! There’s this very, very bad thing, called acid rain. I petted a shark. And, we made a model of pollution, and then we smashed it!
Me: Oh well okay then, definitely $400 well spent.

  1. Oh but wouldn’t Snack Camp be excellent? You could have taste tests between different brands, and making your own snacks, and charting comparisons, and maybe a play about the origins of Pop Tarts.

    Actually my kid went to Fun With Food camp a couple of weeks ago and I still have very little clue about what they did with themselves. Potato prints, I think. She is very closemouthed about school and camp so we just have to guess.

  2. Wait you mean Snack Camp wouldn’t be all about how to fix your mom a tasty snack while she lies in bed blogging?

    I’m totally waiting for *that* kind of snack camp!

  3. HA HA … funny! My grandma judged all events by the quality of food. Exotic vacations were always explained in terms of the restaurants visited.

    Snack camp would have been right up her alley.
