My kids came home from camp on Thursday. Each year that day has a certain rhythm to it. So I’d like to share that day with you: from silence to chaos and back again. Here goes.

Send a Quick Email
Every year, my sisters send great emails to family and friends so that everyone knows when their respective kids will be at camp, where to write and what is acceptable to send.
