For the first time ever….Navy is leaving us!
It is going to be a tough week for us without our peacemaker, and right hand gal.
But she is SO excited!
First thing is first:
They had a competition to see whose artwork would be on everyone’s science sweatshirt…and Navy won!!!  How awesome is that — and she was so proud!  Even if she sort of copied something she found online…but “made changes” to make it her own.
It was cute, because she was constantly complimented on it, and you could tell that she was loving it.
Then for Family Night, we all wrote Navy letters that she would get while she was at camp.  She told me afterwards that she got the most, and that she loved them!
Did she really love Dash’s, that said, “I hope you have a fun time away fromScout.  Cause Scout is yucky and mean and so ugly.  You are the most smart and sexiest person besides me.  Love, Dash”
She said it made her laugh out loud!
SPeaking of Scout — Scout created an entire gift for her, that she wasn’t allowed to open until she was on her way to camp.  I was there when she opened it, and it was a darling note with candy and money attached.  I was so touched — until Navy said, “Mom…this is all money and candy out of my bank!”  We both started laughing at Scout’s move.  And maybe because of the circumstances, she actually thought it was sweet and funny.
Pippi was sad to say goodbye.  Dash didn’t even know what was happening.  And Scout was filling her with advice, and was so bummed she was leaving.  Their farewell hug was so cute!
When she loaded on the bus, she made a move to get her own seat.  (My girl!)  She eventually got trumped…but great effort Navy!  Then they were off.  How bittersweet.
Fast forward five days….
Navy, in a braid, won for the most beads on her necklace!  I asked what they were for, and apparently you get a bead every time you accomplish a skill, or do something nice or extra.
Of course she won for the most beads.
She is a competitor…but mostly, she is just rad!
