We haven't had too much going on since getting back from the beach.
#3 is at camp this week.
We pick her up of Friday. She is growing up so fast and has changed so much just this summer. Last summer she was more interested in how many stuffed animals she could squeeze into her duffle bag. Not this year. The night before going to camp she had a list of things she wanted to do.
- get mom to paint fingernails and toenails (navy blue)
- try on several outfits to find just the right one to make that first impression (How different do the navy shorts look compared to the khaki shorts?)
- remind mom, "While I am gone...", to go see if that Lilly dress I really want is on sale yet (she reminded me several times)
The Man of the House had to do a double take to make sure it was really Princess #3 in the backseat rattling off this very "teenagerish" list. I think I saw a tear in his eye when he realized that it was. #1 was with us and actually did a Tiger Wood's style fist pump in celebration of #3 moving over to the dark side.
We did the routine things when we dropped her off on Sunday like make her bed, unpack her clothes and introduce ourselves to her counselors. When it was time for us to say good-bye, she gave us a quick hug and I think she said "love you" as she took off towards her cabin. Guess she was missing something that was going on inside..... she definitely wasn't worried about missing us.
Times have changed. Where is that sweet little munchkin? Please tell her I miss her.
Summer is going too quickly. I am not enjoying it.
I wake up everyday with this countdown and long list in my head. How many days left until I have to face reality? I don't want to know. Last week we shopped (waisted) everyday for dorm and apartment stuff. I had to put a stop to that continuous school shopping. I don't want to spend everyday of the rest of the summer break preparing for #1 and #2 to go off to college. I guess there is something to be said about waiting until the last minute to do things. I'm gonna give that method a try this time.
