Well, today was the day to drop Maddie at Camp Fowler for the week. She couldn’t wait to go! She told me it was about time “something EPIC” happened this summer which got an eye roll from me and a laugh from her! Maddie insisted that she would not be the last one there this year so we were on the road at 8:00 (check in time is 2:30 so this was a tad early!). We stopped at the Northampton Diner for breakfast. Its one of her favorite breakfast stops!!

On the way there the skies opened up with a downpour complete with thunder and lightning in the distance. But when we came out the skies had cleared and the mist was starting to blow off the mountains.

Then it was on to Charles John’s market in Speculator to pick out a comic book! Unfortunately the selection was a lot more limited this year but Maddie and Brian found a supergirl comic and all was well.

Sign on the way into camp!! I couldn’t resist. Aim high!!!

Then we drove down the road to camp. We arrived at 11:00 (remember check in was at 2:30!). Maddie immediately reacquainted herself with the buildings and grounds and showed us some of her favorite places she missed. We met the chickens and found a song sparrow nest in the tree outside the Lake House much to everyone’s delight.
