(thanks to Mike Lane for the photo-not the exact spot of the camp, but it really represents it).
Tracy rode along with me so we could deliver Charlie and Alec and all of their gear. They will be spending the whole week there, and Charlie was so excited he could hardly stand it. And I was excited for him too, as I am living vicariously through him this week. One of my childhood dreams was to go away for a week of camp-and since that never happened, I can't wait to hear about Charlie's adventures.
After depositing the children safely, Tracy and I wound our way through the gorgeous countryside of Wisconsin...
...stopping in Spooner for a little retail therapy, the Potter's Shed in Shell Lake for a dose of art and a snack, a cheese shop/deli, and a farm for fresh strawberries.
I truly believe Wisconsin holds magical powers to restore your spirit and refresh your energy. I love that state. (Maybe because whenever I go there, it is just for fun.)
So the whole family had a wonderful holiday, independent of each other!
