School Trip Already?

School trip already? Pretty in pink with pink luggage, pink Three Cheers for Girls sleeping bag AND pink backpack, Kat is off to a 3 day school trip to study astronomy, creative writing and make apple cider. The last time she went (the focus was on bugs that time!), it was her first time away from me and we spent ages preparing for the trip. This time it's been a breeze for her - they do grow up so quickly, don't they? Sadly, I haven't changed much - I went through the packing list ten times and packed and repacked countless times. I am still trying to remember the item I must have forgotten to pack...in vain!

Three Cheers for Girls
Right till this morning, every time I mentioned the word ‘packing’, Kat ducked away somewhere in the fear that I would make her go through the list and the items yet once again!

Beaded necklace for Kit Kat has apologized to me already - seeing my near crazy behaviour perhaps, she has assured me that from last time's experience she is sorry but she is positive that she will not miss me this time. She has not asked me to write any notes for her this time but she took the necklace that Kit made for her in her new school (in fact, she wore it as a bracelet as it was made from wire and hurt her a bit...)

Kat's school trip coincided with Kit's first bus journey to school so it was an exciting day for both of them and too much adrenaline for me. Kat has texted me twice – not to tell me that she misses me (*sob*) but to let me know that some mini highlighters are on half price sale in the local bookstore and that it might be a good idea to buy them for her! Cheeky...

Kit is excited about her unrestricted and unlimited access to Kat's room although Kat has given her some very clear instructions. To be fair, Kat did however, give her favourite teddy bear to Kit this morning on loan for 3 days to which Kit immediately responded “Can I have it forever pleeeeese?” Kat smartly ignored her and moved on.

While Kat is away, I will try and not jump at every phone that rings in these next 3 days and will try and sleep at night too. It will be Wednesday soon and our house will be filled with the familiar oohs and aahs of the brilliant time spent with friends. Of course, the first thing Kat will ask for after hugging us all is her favourite marble cake... then she will check the damage to her room…and then we’ll be back to where we started!

Ahh - it doesn't seem five minutes ago I was going off on Brownie trips and the likes. Why did I get old?!

Your post reminded me; our parents used to give our Brown Owl letters when we went on Brownie Holidays, we used to open them during our stay. I was always the one that cried. My mum used to put little presents in. Bless.

I hope she has a fab time and try and relax. I know, it must be hard. I'd be on pins!

I've missed her so much...she is back today. Yay! I was the emotional one in my family too - I used to love being away with friends but would run home to my mum at the earliest opportunity! Would still love to do that :-)
