My two oldest babies (ages 9 and 7) went with their father this morning so he could drop them off at horse camp. The camp lasts five days. They'll have riding lessons, learn to curry a horse and muck out a stall. They'll eat lunch at a small university cafeteria. (We had to go over the basics of cafeteria eating.)
They'll be gone from 8 am to 5 pm. For five days.
How do mothers of kids who are in school do this? It's so quiet!
