However I am bringing down quite a bit of stuff. I have packed some new inexpensive toys and activities for our kids, things we can leave there when we are done.
I am also bringing donations for the school the kids will be attending (paper, markers, colored pencils, rulers, glue sticks, etc),
and also a bunch of craft stuff for CREAR, which is the day camp they will be attending when the school goes on break.
Lastly, I'm bringing some food supplies. I don't know exactly what will be available to us, but I do know that any "american" products will be very expensive. So I'm bringing down some stuff to at least get us started (don't judge all the processed foods!). I know we will have access to tons of fresh fruit, which the kids will love. But I wanted to bring a few familiar items from home. We will also be celebrating 2 birthdays down there (Genevieve will be 8 on June 24th, and Zeke will be 3 on June 27th), so I want to be prepared with cake making stuff.
My biggest job right now is trying to keep my anxiety in check! I have my To-DO list, and I am actually doing okay on it. But I can't seem to control my anxiety. It's going to be a busy week, and no matter how hard I try the end will be crazy I just know it. I should just plan on an all-nighter the night before we leave. Ugh! I just have to keep reminding myself that this will all be worth it.... Right?
