Planting the Seeds of Summer Camp
Martin is nervous about the upcoming "Goose-eye Wilderness Summer Camp". He is worried that the summer camp will be very different than the Wilderness school he has been attending every Thursday all year long. Momma suggests that he and Sylvia both imagine exactly the kind of summer camp they would like — and then she writes down their answers. "This will be a seed for summer camp" she says when they are finished and then she places the lists in a big book on the shelf. "Now you wait — just like you wait to see the plant grow" she adds, 'And when summer camp starts, we can look at the list again and see how close the imagination is from the real thing!"
