This week is going to be a busy week. Marty starts his Lutheran Church Beach camp tomorrow and he will be there until Thursday afternoon. And, Joey has camp at the Lutheran residential camp from Wednesday afternoon through Friday afternoon. "But, Kristin," you say, "you are getting rid of two of the kids for a good portion of the week. How could that possibly make it a busy week?" It makes it a busy week because I'll be schlepping children from on side of the state to the other. Right now, we are at my parents' house and tomorrow, while my mom and dad keep the younger 2 occupied, I have to make a 2 hour drive to the beach. After Marty is dropped off, I'm going to drive 2 hours back to my parents' house, have dinner, and then drive the hour and ten minutes home. Monday and Tuesday will be my down days. On Wednesday, I am going to drive to 45 minutes to drop Joey off at his camp and the 45 minutes to get home. On Thursday, I have to pick Marty up from the beach which is over 3 hours from myhouse. I will either spend Wednesday night at my parents or Thursday night at their house so I don't have to do that entire 6 1/2 hour round trip in one day. And, finally, on Friday, Joey has to be picked up from his camp.
I am no longer Kristin - wife, mom, blogger, and crafty person. I am Kristin the taxi cab driver.
*In answer to Nina's question, there isn't anyone to carpool with. The camps they are going to aren't sponsored by our church but by the Lutheran Church in NC. The two camps, Agape and Kure Beach, are ministries associated with NC Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
