I've gotten the b'hoys sworn in by General McDowell. Tomorrow they fight the fire at Willard's and move to Camp Ellsworth. Except for preferring to stay home and write, camp is going well. The kids are nice, and I can actually let them just write! I don't have to entertain them! My EE t-shirt came today. I think I will wear it Friday, maybe bring in the manuscript so far. I think it will impress the students. Some of them are still printing with a pencil--Geez! The older group is bringing in laptops--that is promising. If I were the ruler of the universe, writing would be taught much differently, that's for sure. Don't ask for the particulars--it would just be different!
