So, I'm Officially A Camp Mom

We are leaving tomorrow to take Mary Emma to camp. She is going to Kanakuk in Missouri all week next week. I'm nervous, I'm praying, I'm excited, I'm jealous (I would've LOVED this camp as a kid), and I can't wait to pick her up next Sunday and hear all about her week.

Here's her stuff.

The trunk and all of her stuff.

The inside lid of her trunk - with so many faces who love her. Hope this will help with homesickness.

The lid of the trunk. I'm a little OCD. Can you tell?

The lid and front of the trunk.

We'll be staying about 20 miles from her in Branson, MO for the week. I'll be blogging about our trip while we're there - assuming we have an internet connection - and will DEFINITELY be blogging about HER trip once we get home.

Here's a little hint about what you'll get after she gets home - her grandfather (THANKS POP!!) had a little old digital camera that he gave her to take to camp. I am sending 2 sets of replacement batteries. She has a 1G memory card. She's 8 years old. I CANNOT WAIT to see her camp experience through HER eyes! I'll be sure to share it with you here!

Talk to ya later!

How wonderful Robyn! I sent Sarah Austin to camp at the end of May. It was her first time away without me and it was only for 4 days. I was so nervous. lol I have a friend who sent her two girls to the same camp Mary Emma is going to. They loved it! Glad you will be so close just in case. Joy blogged about the trip on her blog and showed pictures. I can tell you how to find it if you're interested in reading it. :)

You are totally the best camp mother. I think my lack of trunk packing skills were partially the cause of my daughter requiring to come home early. She only made it one night and on night 2 my husband had to drive 5 hours each way to get her (did I mention his drive started at 10pm?). I can't remember being so sad. I should have talked to you first about how to go about it :)
