Laurel Goes To Ecampelos
Clarissa: Sooo……… I heard that you’re going to camp. How did you manage that one? Don’t worry; I won’t let the boys get in your room while you are away. Besides, you’re the only sister I have, even though you beat me to camp.
Laurel: Thanks! *smiles*
Laurel: I think I might not like the going part. You know, being in a box for days and days with just my walk-man and my teddy.
Clarissa: It won’t be that bad. I’m sure Mom will pack you a snack and something to drink. Besides you’re 10 yrs old now. Time for an adventure! *smiles*
Clarissa: What the heck are you doing in there?
Laurel: *sighs* Waiting.
Clarissa: Waiting for what for Pete’s sake???
Laurel: To get going.
Clarissa: I don’t think everything is ready yet. Marie and Bob are still going over all the information. It’s the first time they ever sent a doll anywhere, never mind to camp.
Clarissa: Besides aren’t you going to say goodbye to Lolani? I mean, you won’t see her until Sept. looks like.
Laurel: She said she’d be over later after lunch.
Clarissa: OK, but what about the rest of us? Mom’s feeling pretty sad about the whole thing. She said she won’t sleep a wink 'til she hears you got there safe.
Lolani: I can’t believe you’re going to be gone all summer. Who am I supposed to play with? The dumb boys? My cry-baby sister? Gee Whiz!!!
Laurel: I’m sorry. Mom and Dad thought it would be a great experience for me. I really think it’s a great experience for them. At least I won’t be seeing my brothers all summer. They love to boss me.
Lolani: Still, I am going to miss you…………
