Straight out of Parent Trap

is how I describe the camp Annabel is at this week. This is her first year at sleep away camp and I am so excited for her (and for me!).Photobucket
This is the mess hall that opens out onto the lake.Photobucket
Darren's not happy to see her gone for a week.Photobucket
She is in a cabin with 7 other girls, all 11-12yrs old. She did such a great job of packing.Photobucket
She has never been away from home for this long alone.Photobucket
Annabel is still sad, but look at Darren's face. It is a reflection of mine.Photobucket
This is her cabin.Photobucket
And this is the view from her cabin porch. Beautiful.Photobucket
She was having a hard time saying good-bye until someone mentioned that they were going to go do the swim test. Her eyes got wide and she was gone.

You and Darren are the coolest parents. This looks like heaven for Annabel. She's going to have some great stories to tell. I can't wait to hear them.
