Camp Grady Spruce & Roy the Raccoon

In July Kade and a friend attended Camp Grady Spruce at Possum Kingdom Lake.  He just went during the day, so not entirely like a real camp.  Kade enjoyed all kinds of outdoor activities, learned to water ski and came home each day with tons of funny songs and sayings.

At the beginning of the summer the boys and I were helping Clint build fence.  To make a long story short, we found a baby raccoon (eyes still closed).  We let the boys bring it home and a friend who had raised one before helped us out.  She didn't actually, but her Yorkie dog did.  The Yorkie had just had a puppy and took the baby raccoon as one of her own and nursed it.  We named the raccoon Roy and brought him home to live with us in July after he started eating dog food on his own.  It was quite an experience!  Roy has since moved on, but we enjoyed our time with him.

Here is a funny video of Roy and his funny behavior.  Sorry the video is turned sideways and not edited, but you can get the gist.  Layton is the victim (he loved it, though).

  1. I always love the pictures and videos. I laughed at the video of Layton & Roy. We will miss Roy, but what an experience.
