Bon Voyage

You cannot believe how quiet it is in our house!
First thing this morning, we drove the three girls across town
to the American Cancer Society parking lot.
They are heading up to Sun Valley for Siblings camp--
(a camp for sibs of kids with Cancer).
It was kind of interesting.  On top of some last minute paperwork,
we had to meet with some nurses to go over allergies etc., the girls then had to have their vitals checked,
their hair checked for lice and their feet checked for Athlete's Foot.
Thankfully, they all passed.
Then it was on to get their "mug" shots taken.
 They were all a little nervous to leave home...
 But even before the buses pulled into the parking lot,
the girls were already making friends.
  Months and months ago, a couple of Kean's doctors told us that we needed to send the girls.
From what we understand, Camp Rainbow Gold is supposed
to be Nirvana for kids.
 They are gone all week and it will be so strange not to have them
running the house at full volume.
It will be interesting to see how Keanut adjusts to the calm, quiet house.
p.s.  I've already adjusted.
p.p.s.  Reese will turn seven on Thursday-- at the camp. I hope she's okay
with having another "special" birthday.  If you remember, last year, we celebrated
her birthday in the hospital.

Enjoy the piece of peace and quiet my dear. I'm sure it must feel a little bittersweet...and by Thursday you'll be ready for a little noise again! Miss you!

I remember Camp Rainbow Gold--it's all the kids at MSTI talked about. I always wanted to go as a counselor/nurse. I am sure your girls will come home talking non-stop about it as well. Enjoy your week!
