Camp Time Quality Time

Yes, it can be done..packing for a week in less then 24 hours.
Know how?
Well, it's "camp" and he's a "boy" so all of those 6 sets of shorts, shirts, socks, boxers {sorry Bear}, etc., probably won't be worn much anyway.
You know, even I had to laugh a little. I remember the first year Kody went to camp. A few days before I went out and spend well over $200.00 {sorry Karlio} on matching outfits and all kinds of travel sized stuff, a new toothbrush, littel over priced cases to keep all those travel sized things in, you name it, I really thought he had to have it.
He had with him three enormous rolling suitcases.
When he came home everything, seriously EVERYTHING I bought him was rolled up in exactly the same way I packed it.
On a happier note, his school clothes shopping was done early that year. :0)

Anyway, every year I downsize a little, every year I buy less and less.

This year I bought absolutely nothing. Yea, nadda, zippo, nothing at all. Just grabbed whatever I didn't care that got filthy out of his closet, a couple swim trunks and a few personal toiletries {deo, toothbrush, etc.} out of the bathroom and in a medium sized duffel bag, everything fit no problem at all.

I left him yesterday looking like this...


And I am sure when he get's home on Wednesday he'll look pretty much the same.
Gotta love camp. LOL!!

With Kaysha on vacation in Ocala this leaves us with only Kolin.
Talk about eerily quiet in this house, this is what's it's like to have one kid.
Call me crazy but I do love the madness of having 6. :0)

Anyway, I will have lots of quality time with Kolin, which he needs so it'll be great.
Today he is teaching me how to play PS3 Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 2 and how to properly throw a football.
Tomorrow I teach him how to make the best blueberry cheesecake in the world and maybe a thing or two about dusting.
Hey, what's fair is fair, right? :0)

Hope you all have a great day today!!

I bet ya Kody might LOOK the same as when he left for camp but I'm wondering if he'll SMELL the same?! Boys and showers at camp don't usually get along too well! :)

I packed my son for his first year of camp and after that he was on his own! Figure if he forgets something he'll learn and won't the next year!! :D

Your time with Kolin sounds fun! ALL I hear in this house from our oldest is his PS3 and "COD, COD, COD". Does Kolin ever play online? Ours does...

Have a great day!

This made me chuckle - so very true!
My youngest daughter went to camp last month, and because of all the wet weather we were having here in the midwest, everything in her bag was soaking wet and STUNK!!! It was awful. Needless to say I started on that laundry as soon as we walked in the door! :-)
Enjoy your Kolin 'n Me time...he'll have that baking and dusting down in no time!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Does Kody go to Camp Quality? I live in Michigan and I volunteer at the Camp Quality in South Michigan. It's a summer camp for children that have/have had cancer. I was just wondering.
