Penny was really excited this morning about going to camp this weekend. She's especially excited for horseback riding, but I'm hoping there will be lots for her to enjoy.
I told her that if she really likes it, we can talk about sending her to an actual week-long solo summer camp in a year or two (there are a few in VA and Maryland that I've seen references to). I expected her reaction to be an immediate, "No, don't want to leave you!" but instead she seemed intrigued. So we'll see how her experience is this weekend.
I'd still be happier if I had a schedule of events, but I'm beginning to feel cautiously optimistic about this weekend. Here's hoping!
