Well, this is happening right now.

My darling Mia went away (all by herself) to camp for the first time ever this week. At the risk of sounding cliche' I swear she was just born yesterday.

This pic made me do a double take. When did her legs get so long? When did her smile change? Who is this person? Heeeellllpppppp meeeeeee.
This sums up their friendship perfectly: Mia trying to read. Raegan trying to talk.
Thank goodness for multiple friends and family members there to take care of our sweet girls. I'm getting daily updates and pictures.
The below photo disturbs me on so many levels. First of all, what in heaven's name is my daughter doing with her hair? I have no words. Second of all, that skirt is from her "Tuesday" bag and that shirt is from her "Wednesday" bag, which means all of her outfits are messed up and out of order. I also gave her a speech about why she should wear tennis shoes every single day. This speech included horror stories of rattle snakes and spider bites. And if she didn't listen to me about the shoes then she most likely didn't listen to me about sunscreen and insect repellent. HOW QUICKLY CAN I GET TO MADILL, OK? I'm dying right now. I. Am. Dying.
Hair, clothes, shoes, sunburns, and bug bites aside, I wager to bet she is having a pretty darn good time. And it just might have something to do with the fact that she is away from her neurotic mother for an entire week.

I first attended summer camp by myself in first grade and my mom likes to remind me that when I came home she found all my clean undies still folded in the exact spot she packed them :) so gross but pretty funny.

I'm back!!!! And I'm so glad they have each other. On another note, unless I am writing my own blogs, I physically can not read anyone else's. It's a weird guilt/denial thing. So, I have a lot of catching up to do on here. Thanks for posting these pics!!
