I don't know about you, but I am a list girl. I love lists. I have one for groceries, one for Costco, one for Target or Walmart, one for books to read, one for projects to complete, one for the yard work that needs to be done, one for the garden I want to plant with the girls this summer. And probably a few more.
I spent much of today running errands and crossing things of my list. But my head is still full of lists--lists of things to pack for Girl Scout camp this weekend, lists of project supplies to take along, lists of groceries to pack for dinner tomorrow night, and a list of things I absolutely cannot forget to pack.
Can't remember what I've told you, but Audrey's troop is going camping for the weekend. Only four of my seven girls can make this trip, so it's a small group. Each girl's mom is coming too. And because they're such a small group, and because I can easily get my hands on four sewing machines, we're going to learn to sew.
Instead of planning a busy camp weekend, we have only one goal--to make pajama pants in order to earn a sewing badge--and to relax and have fun. I've packed all my nail polish (how does one woman have 30 bottles of nail polish?!) for pedicures, embroidery floss for friendship bracelets and hair wraps, and even some movies to watch at night (with popcorn, of course!)
I usually come home from camp totally wiped out and not at all prepared for the coming week. I decided that I'd really like to come home rested and relaxed this time. Especially since there's a Brownie meeting on Monday after school and I have a speaking engagement on Tuesday morning.
I'd love for the girls (and their moms!) to come home rested and relaxed too. Audrey usually falls apart after coming home from a weekend away, and other moms have told me that their daughters do the same. School is getting busier with the end drawing near and they've had lots of homework, play practice, and a project or two to anticipate. They could use a break!
So even though it's only Thursday, I'll just go ahead and wish y'all a happy weekend.
