I know my kids are excited

I know my kids are excited for Gunnery Camp! They have been waiting by the mailbox everyday for the mailman to see if their binder with the index tab dividers of activities comes in the mail! They love flipping through and seeing what all they will be doing at camp this year! Sometimes I wish that I could go!
