Me: Hahahaha! Awesome! Hahahaahah!
Moomin: AND they had raisins.
Me: No way. Hahahaha. Raisins!
Moomin: Yes! At the first snack time before the aftercare they also had Cheezits!
Moomin: Oh! I get it.
Me: Heehehehehehe
Moomin: You’re laughing because I sort of should be talking about the Marine Science part of the camp. And not the snacks.
Me: You are correct, my son. I do love good snacks. On the other hand did not pay freaking four hundred bucks for you to attend Snack Camp.
Moomin: Well, let me tell you about the sort of British things. They’re very tiny and live in salt ponds. I think, sort of British, but not really…
Me: Brine shrimp?
Moomin: YES! Sea monkeys! I learned about the ecology of estuaries! There’s this very, very bad thing, called acid rain. I petted a shark. And, we made a model of pollution, and then we smashed it!
Me: Oh well okay then, definitely $400 well spent.

    Oh but wouldn't Snack Camp be excellent? You could have taste tests between different brands, and making your own snacks, and charting comparisons, and maybe a play about the origins of Pop Tarts.Actually my kid went to Fun With Food camp a couple of weeks ago and I still have very little clue about what they did with themselves. Potato prints, I think. She is very closemouthed about school and camp so we just have to guess.

    As a food blogger, I probably *would* send my kid to snack camp. 🙂

    Wait you mean Snack Camp wouldn't be all about how to fix your mom a tasty snack while she lies in bed blogging? I'm totally waiting for *that* kind of snack camp!

    snack camp would be awesome. Though for $400 I'd expect even better snacks– like Ben and Jerry's.

    HA HA … funny! My grandma judged all events by the quality of food. Exotic vacations were always explained in terms of the restaurants visited.Snack camp would have been right up her alley.

  6. Teachers should deliver presentation in class so that students can get the idea about delivering the meaningful presentation. They should use all necessary tools which are required in best presentation. They should be fully aware about the topic on which they are going to speak.
