Porter is in an art day camp this week, which has been great for him. And me too. This is the first time I've ever really left him with complete strangers for hours at a time. Preschool was different, with this camp I really have no clue what he does while I'm gone or if the teachers are nice or if he participates at all. Porter is a shy kid at first and has a hard time warming up to new situations, but he's handled this well. It's a good warm up for kindergarten in the fall. Plus it gives me time to go to Costco with only two.
We also finally managed to pick some spruce tips before they all grew too big.
I made spruce tip syrup this time. It was easy. It turned out a bit thin for pancakes, but I've been using it to sweeten my tea in the morning, and it is perfect for that. I put sugar in my tea anyway, and now it just has a little zing and vitamin C.
I'm looking forward to more good weather, the berry season, and maybe, just maybe, a little more sleep.
