I'm back. It was a great trip. Yeah, ok, a little rushed at times. Interesting to be with different personalities on the trip. The teacher on this trip... well... he is... umm... - what to say? He likes to be on schedule. He can be loud. And I can't always read him well. I think he is nice. In fact, I know he is nice because I have seen him when he is nice, but... sometimes I forget. And when I forget, I get a little nervous and watch him carefully.
But I think he is nice. I don't think that when I see him get frustrated with situations or kids who insist on pushing limits. But then I remember when I see him dealing gently with kids who need gentleness.
Still, it was good to have on the trip another mom who is my friend who could laugh at the whole situation at times and tell me to relax.
It was a good trip, though. I enjoyed it. Nice to be with kids. Nice to see things. To eat because I was out of the stress and with people where I felt cared for. To swim, walk, run...
I ate more food than I would usually eat in a week, way more. Interestingly, I only gained two pounds. Happy about that. I think because we walked and ran so much. I even ran with the kids for their capture the flag game. I think I was supposed to sit on the sidelines with the adults... but... I like to play.
I enjoyed my time.
Now I am home. Met with silence. Met by kids delighted to see me and a husband who likely wished I wasn't home.
