When I was growing up, each of the kids was involved with scout camp and girls camp. For the boys it was always Camp Bradley. For the girls it as always Alturas Lake. We would pack our bags and prepare for camp a day before leaving for camp. For some reason, the Girls camp was much more easy going and playful than the boys camp. I remember several times seeing my Mom sitting in the middle of the living room floor with the pajamas of my sisters. I remember asking her what she was doing. Well, she was sewing up the bottoms of their pajamas. This was a little prank that my mom would pull on her daughters just to let them know that she was thinking about them while up at camp. Now, in the modern era of political correctness, this playful prank isn't so well received. I would imagine that pranks are no longer encouraged and small notes of encouragement are now the norm. Well, I'm not going to follow the norm, I'm going to follow tradition. So tonight, I'll be heading over to where Savanna has dropped off her camp gear to sew up her pajama bottoms. I hope that when she goes to bed that first night and as a hard time getting into her pajamas, she will think of her geeky Dad and smile.
