Every year, before Camp Grandmama and Grampy Campy, I paint a labyrinth on the driveway at the entrance to the door.
This is the maze from Camp in 2006. Our first maze. See how even the lines are?
Camp starts in four days, and I have a problem.
The weatherman has forecast rain every day until Monday.
Camp begins on Monday.
When will I make my maze?
Look at the little ducks (Charlie, R.J. and Ben) following Grampy, They were so little!! Grampy needed some calming down I guess. We sent him to the maze.
I love the little flower in the middle. See? Room for three campers!! (from 2007, I think). The lines are still pretty straight, though.
This was our labyrinth from 2008. My sister, Karen, helped and then it rained!!! Mr. H. and I had gone down to pick up the campers and Karen was still at the house with Mom. Karen frantically tried to save it for me (something with garbage bags and blow dryers) What a sweetie (and hey, it worked!)
The kids had to take turns leading the others through the maze. It’s not as easy as it looks.
One of our themes in 2009 was Chivalry Day, so a castle seemed appropriate. Hey, why was I being so critical of my lines. They look pretty good, right?
Cooper and Sophie came to Camp for the first time in October of last year. Oh, this must be the maze I was thinking of. A wavy lined pumpkin.
Yes. You are right. I DID put their jackets on and make them go out into the cold, cold day to “walk the maze”. They loved it. Really. (And they didn’t care that my lines weren’t perfect)
Introducing….For Camp Grandmama and Grampy Campy of 2011. The Big Cat Daddy of them all….. The Triple Spiral!!! Now…let’s hope it doesn’t rain. (It’s kind of hypnotizing, isn’t it? Now, bark like a dog)
I better get it together, because there is only FOUR MORE DAYS UNTIL CAMP GRANDMAMA AND GRAMPY CAMPY!!
