One of the big fifth-grade milestones is Outdoor Ed, where the kids spend Monday - Friday at a sleepaway camp. A few teachers go with them, along with several high school honor students. Having already heard so much good stuff about it from Thing One, Thing Two was R-E-A-L-L-Y excited to go. Honestly, if I had let her, she would have started packing a month ago! Thing One is excited to have a few days as an only child. Thing Two has experienced this at least four times - when T1 went to Outdoor Ed and church camp - but I don't think T1 has gotten to have us to herself for days on end like this before. Should be fun!
The kids were more than a little excited to go. The only tears I saw this morning were coming from a few of the moms, LOL.
