Camp Wa Wa Segowea 2012

Last year, we sent Mick to Camp Wa Wa Segowea (pronounced Seh-goy-ya), a YMCA camp not five minutes from the house, deep in the woods with its own beautiful lake. Mick LOVED it, which was surprising since he was outside all day long and there's bugs. But he did, he loved it. He found out he could sleep over there, but after the fact, so we promised that we would let him go to sleep away camp there this year. It was a bit unnerving, but we knew he wouldn't be homesick and if he got scared, we were not five minutes away. We got him all packed and took him down on a Sunday, took a little tour around and as we were getting ready to leave him to get settled in and figure things out, we realized we had left his pillow at home. So after Tom and I got home, I got his pillow and headed right back. That night as Tom and I were heading to bed we realized we hadn't packed his toothbrush. Thank God the camp really isn't 5 minutes away.  The pics below were swiped from Camp Wa Wa's Facebook page. I hope they don't mind.
