I see a smiling girl in several of these pictures. I'll take that as she is having fun!
I see her really concentrating on the apparent warm up stretch. I'm assuming she's either really tired or just not into exercising at the moment! (And hope that she's not sad about something.)
I see her chillin' out with the girls. I'm happy to see that she is making new friends.
I see her enjoying a swim in the lake. I took that as a fun way to cool off! Thanks to my friend Wendy who pointed out that it appears that Ally is wearing a site on her tummy. Woa! I'll take that as success! One of Ally's goals while at camp was to try new sites and to gain self-confidence at inserting her own pump sites.
And when the mail arrives with several letters from camp - all at once - you read them over and over again and know that all is well at camp!
