Today A3 left for Outdoor Environmental Education… a.k.a. Camp Cispus. A U-Haul truck full of sleeping bags and suitcases preceded the hoards of 5th graders, who clamoured onto busses with their teachers and high school counselors. To say that I’m nervous about her being away is a gross understatement. I hope that she will have a great time.
W., one of her best friends, and A3
Loading up the kidlets
On the bus and ready to roll
She has her noise-reducing headphones to muffle some of the chaos so she won’t get upset during the ride there. She was so excited about the disposable camera that I doubt she’ll have any film left by the time they arrive. As the busses pulled out the rain started. Weather predictions call for a wet, cold week. Thank heavens she has two pairs of shoes, in addition to her rubber boots and huge pile of socks.
Three fundraiser meetings, cooking dinner for a team of people Monday, making and selling carmeled apples of Friday night, setting up and working the farmer’s market next Saturday, taking A1 and A2 to cheer practice and art lessons, respectively, each day, in addition to regular work should help keep me busy so that there’s less time to worry about A3. One of my DH’s co-workers gave him a bottle of wine, so after tonight’s meeting (for planning a Bunko tournament) I plan on having a glass. Hopefully it will relax me enough that I can sleep. I miss sleep… and knitting. In fact, I miss knitting a lot. I wonder if others at the meeting would be offended if I knit while listening. I’d better not, some of the other moms have been working like gangbusters to get this up and running and I’d hate for them to think I wasn’t serious or appreciative.
