I missed the farmers' market this morning to drive Annalena to the airport. She's going to a very not-New England camp for a couple of weeks with her best friend from fourth grade. I'm not going to name of the camp here, though it'll be obvious to some of you from this photo. Suffice to say that I'm happy my girl will get indoctrinated with a big dose of core values from the old country, plus learn some useful skills, like how to ride a unicycle.
Re: camp care packages. So far I've gathered glow sticks, temporary butterfly tattoos, temporary henna tattoos, a poker deck, fancy lip balm, turkey jerky, lollipops (sugar free so as not to be confiscated), bubbles, a "Grow a Pirate," fortune telling fish, postcards and stamps, and a Red Sox pen that doubles as a flashlight. I'm also thinking to throw in some pretzels and chips to share with her tipi mates. Other ideas?
