My son is off to Cub Scout day camp this week. I asked another mom yesterday, after seeing her with her 3 younger kiddos (all under the age of 3) picking up from school and then dropping off at camp, if I could pick her son up from summer school and then take him to camp. She agreed.
Today, the friend joined us for lunch before heading to camp. It was also a nice way for me to get to know him better.
I dropped his carseat off at his house and realized he left his swimsuit in the car. He didn't have a hat, so I asked his mom for a hat and ran the suit and hat back to camp. She offered to take it, but I know how not fun it can be to corral kiddos into the car to run an errand.
Now that our kids go to school in the community in which we live, it's really nice to be able to carpool for activities.
