T Minus 7 and Ticking

So we have about a week of school left and it's really not even a week because most of the days are half days. I'm sure like most people I can't wait for it to be over. No more begging Chase to do his homework. This alone is reason enough for school to end. Plus, summer,yeah. Last summer we took this big huge cross country trip, which was beyond fun but it took up a lot of our summer lazing around time. This summer will be more normal. Camp, vacations, pool time. Just what a summer should be, for us.
A week after school ends we pack up Saige and Chase with their camp trunks and off they go to camp on the Chesapeake. Sailing, waterskiing, water balloons, swimming, sports, art, friends, scavenger hunts, dances, two whole weeks where their lives are run by teenagers. They can't wait. I know how much fun it is because I myself went to that camp every year for a month. Yeah for them.
Last year was their first year. I thought, at least Chase will be sad. Not so much. Every night we e mailed them. I waited and waited for a response. I didn't get any details but I did get a scrawled. I love you, with his first and last name, just in case I forgot. I saved it. Saige wrote a couple letters with a few details, kind of like throwing us a bone. I was glad though, it just mean't they were having fun. So, let's finish out this school year and get a move on.

Hi! Came over from Mrs' R's site. Are they by any chance going to Tockwogh? I went there many times when we did Indian Princesses with my Dad (old YMCA father/daughter bonding thing). I begged my mom to send me for summer camp.
