This is the first time I've ever tried posting by cell phone, but this being paradise it's the only option available to me.
As camp doctor I don't really have to follow all of the usual rules around here but I thought it important that PalKid take her swim test. She passed rather magnificently, then spiked a fever, puked, and spent the next two days in bed.
But all was not lost. In the way that kids do, she bounced right back. Last night we stayed up late. I wanted to show her the real night sky, just as my father did with me. When I asked her if she wanted to see the Milky Way she said, "Daddy, that's not real."
We fixed that misconception moments later, and she also saw her first four meteors.
The week here is short and full of sore throats and splinters. I can't wait to come back.
