I guess I gotta write this kinda fast before Mama gets here.
I’ve kinda been too distracted to really write anything here at camp. Every day’s been super busy… and super FUN too!
But now it’s all over, and I’m just kinda sitting here, waiting for Mama to come get me. And even though I really missed everyone while I was gone… I guess I’m kinda sad to be going home.
I can’t believe I was so nervous at first. Camp was AWESOME.
The other kids were really cool, and fun to talk to.
And the food really wasn’t so bad, once you got used to it.
I played so much football, and the coaches taught us all kinds of fun stuff!
Even the older kids weren’t so bad. They told us lots of funny stories about when they first started coming to camp too.
I did all kinds of awesome stuff I’ve never done before, and I met some really cool people too.
But do you know what the best part was?
I know I only met her a few weeks ago, but… I think she’s one of my best friends. We had so much fun together. She knows lots of funny stories, and trusted me with all kinds of special secrets. It feels almost like we’ve been friends for forever.
And saying goodbye, well… It sucked.
But I was brave. I didn’t stop smiling the whole time. I didn’t want her to know how sad I really felt, y’know?
But it’s just not fair.
It’s bad enough that her Papa’s house is almost three hours away from Windenburg. But her Mama lives all the way in France. Another country!
How can we be friends if we’re so far away? What if we never see each other again?
But when I asked Colette about it, she just smiled, and told me not to worry.
Then we made a special pinky-promise that we’d write to each other all the time, and call each other sometimes too, if our parents let us. And I really hope they will.
She only left a few minutes ago, but… I miss her already.
I can’t wait til I get her first letter.
And I really can’t wait to see her again next year.
