all the Oldest Carrotstick's late night trips down mountain trails must have unwittingly led the her into a Twilight encounter. Today she went all Edw@rd Cu!!en on us, and though she protested mightily, she successfully completed the high ropes course! She scampered up that hanging tree trunk with no problem -- and no freaky looking computer animated enhancements ala the first Twilight movie.
I am glad to report that no other vampire-like traits have yet been exhibited. Though I wonder if I should be afraid for my safety, because PB&J did the same yesterday afternoon. I'll be on the lookout for unusual bite marks on my neck. If tomorrow I report that I have taken leave of my senses and climbed the high ropes course myself, you'll know what happened.

can you see what is missing from this picture?
I'll tell you. there is no Oldest Carrotstick. this camp has been a dream come true for her. it's all about hanging out with new friends 14 hours a day. we see her only briefly at meals and when she needs to change clothes. last night was the best! she was hanging out with a group of Young Adults (15 to college-age) and they asked her what college she was going to. Frighteningly, she played right along with it and told them she was going to go to BYU or Utah State.
I think I need to pull out the "I'm only 13" sign.
we first came here when she was only 4 and still needed and wanted us.
I miss those days.

if you are going to drive a scooter, it's best if you do it in style.
(I felt very double-oh-seven trying to covertly take this girl's picture with my phone without her thinking I was a crazy stalker person. You should try it! It's fun! Hey, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take an undercover picture, post it on your blog, then leave me a message in my comments and I'll check it out! I'll be the "M" to your James Bond! Just don't do it in a creepy bad illegal way. That's my disclaimer. I am not trying to encourage delinquency in any way, shape, or form.)

(which she did. seriously. her nickname is now "bruiser".)
And, finally, in Reference Manual Modified ChineEnglish:
Many sad goodbyes as happy we are you visited us came.
