(Oh, and a warning, the past 8 years have flown by. Those of you with six month olds probably can't imagine it, but in a few "days" you'll also have an 8 year old.)
I'm sure one of the things that made the camping experience "amazing" was the fact that my "baby", now 8 year old beauty queen to be C is one of the most wonderful campers ever. She is flexible (an important trait in a camper), willing to try anything (also impressive) and sleeps through the night. It astonishes me that there are 10 year olds who don't sleep through the night. There's a goal to have, "By the time she's 10, I want her sleeping through the night". Talk about setting the bar low! But alas, I could post 8008 words on how great it was & how amazing it was to watch my great 8 climb a 45ft wall, but why not just post a photo?
