Mikaela is going to girls' camp!!!


I know this probably isn't a big deal to you professional mothers out there, but today as I read through the list of stuff to bring to camp, I realized she was going away. It hit me and made me sad. I am happy for her but, I am sad to see her growing up so fast. I had flashbacks to my girls' camp days and thought of all the great fun she is going to have and hopefully the spiritual moments too. Campfire testimony meetings were awesome! Girls' camp is the best and I am so glad she gets to participate. Now, how do I get past the emptiness that mommy feels? How do I hide it? I've done this kind of stuff before, but today more than ever, I don't wanna let go...



P.S. Dalton's birthday post is coming. Having picture troubles.

Baking cookies for Spew and D-Rock is a great way to hide any emptiness. We will always be there for you. Needy, helpless, and oft-times cute.

Wow!!!!! I can't believe she is old enough. She will have a great time. She will only be gone for a few days. Dalton going to 1st grade is a bigger deal to me. I can't beleive Ethan will be gone all day to school. I don't know if I should laugh or cry.
