I picked up James from his hockey camp yesterday. Everyone was really impressed with how he had improved with his skills. They had a lot of camp fun as well playing games. It reminded me of my childhood camps though we slept in tents and had to use an outhouse whereas he sleeps in an air conditioned room with a personal washroom. No bonfires though!
He said he "tried new things" at the camp and that meant he ate salad with his pasta.
Then in the evening I went to Mady's concert with Karen and Madeline. Madeline drove. Karen hadn't told her where it was so we took a long route to get there.
Her concert was awesome! I especially liked one of the songs she wrote herself and I thought her voice was very well suited for the "walk 500 miles" song. She is a very accomplished young lady!
I saw Lisa there and she said she hadn't seen me in so long she wondered if I was mad at her. But no, I'm just busy! We're planning on lunch together in a week or so. I've missed her!
When we were about to leave one lady asked if Madeline could drive her mother home. Of course Madeline being the nice person that she is said yes. But Karen was talking to someone and so we couldn't leave right away. So Madeline went to check the silent auction to see if she won. The mother started complaining that Madeline would leave us. There were some surprising comments and I began to understand a bit more about my friend. Sometimes seeing their mother does that.
My parents are coming up soon for our Algonquin trip!
