Out of Town

The big day has arrived.  Jungle Boy is heading off to spend a month studying at American Ballet Theatre's summer intensive program.

I'm flying out with him, to make sure he makes his connecting flights.  I offered to pack some of his things in my luggage, but he fit it all into this relatively small bag.

And by all I mean
  • quilt
  • sheets
  • pillow
  • set of towels
  • 5 pairs of ballet shoes, and a pair of jazz shoes
  • 6 sets of ballet class gear
along with all of his regular clothes, flip-flops, mp3 speakers, Kindle, toiletries, jacket etc.  If I hadn't supervised the packing myself, I never would have believed it would all fit in there.  When he gets to the dorm, I'm going to head out and buy him some laundry detergent and other sundries. 

And cookies.  Because I can't believe he'll be gone for a whole month.  I'll have to get some last-minute mothering in.

4 people stopped folding laundry to write:

Say it with love, say it with cookies.

But what a wonderful month! I hope so -- for both of you.

I haven't met a moment cookies couldn't fix. (OK maybe I have, but it's a nice idea)
