CAMP time

SO two of my urchins leave for camp tomorrow....the youngest one will be gone for a week -- the longest I will have not seen her. I would NOT do this if her sister were not going to the same camp at the same time.
When My kids were babies, I used to pack the diaper bag this I thought I would do it to help her stay organized: into each large gallon ziplock bag, I put an entire outfit--Socks, undies, shirt and shorts/pants. That way...she grabs ONE bag...can lug it to the shower/bath room and it has everything in it. If she wears flip socks used out of that bag and she has an extra pair.
It is AMAZING how much digging and stuff this saves. When I did it for them as babies, I'd put a diaper, little socks, onsie, and outfit in it.
Happy Father's Day out there to all moms who are their kids dad, to all dads...and those who don't know who their dad is.

I used to do that with my daughter's diaper bag. Maybe when she is a little bigger and goes off to camp, I'll do it then too. Lovely blog, by the way.

My dd14 just returned from camp in New Mexico. She was gone for a week and is cranky and very teenager-y today.
