Weekend Top 10

- ONE -
We were on the road by 6:30 Saturday morning with Starbucks and chicken biscuits in hand to pick up Mason from camp!

- TWO -
It was POURING when we got there but we got his luggage loaded in the car and were shuttled over to the legacy center where we took care of his checkout paperwork, registered for next summer (woo hoo!) and were treated to the closing show.

After the show we picked Mason up from his counselor where the counselor presented him with his camper award and we got to chat for a couple of minutes about Mason's week.  Mason gave him a huge hug and got teary-eyed saying goodbye.  Sweetest ever.

- FOUR -
Crows feet and biggest smile ever because I've got my boy back!!!

- FIVE -
It was so sweet to see all three kids reunited... they couldn't tell stories fast enough and it made my heart happy!!!

- SIX -
It was about a two hour drive home complete with Whataburger stop and and naps for Mason and G.  When we got home we emptied the trunk and ALL the clothes/bedding went in the wash and then my kitchen looked like this while Mason showed everyone all his "stuff" from the week.  Notes, letters, souvenirs, etc. was everywhere and it was so sweet.  And please look at that sweet face in the camper photo that Sky Ranch took ;)

Saturday afternoon Luke worked on his Because of Winn-Dixie reflection paper (a summer assignment that's due on the first day of school) while Griffin and Mason both took another nap.  #glorious

Saturday night we were all treated to a "show" put on by Mason complete with cheers, skits and songs from camp :)

- NINE -
Sunday morning we did church and then spent the afternoon finishing back-to-school prep.  I worked on lesson plans, Luke wrapped up his summer assignment, Griffin made cards for her friends and teachers at school and Mason had a playdate at a friends house.

- TEN -
We finished off the weekend with our annual back-to-school brinner.  It's one of my very favorite nights of the year and this year was no exception.  Then it was EARLY to bed for our crew because FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!

Happy Monday, friends!!!
