I am flying the kids out to Minnesota so my daughter can attend a specialized camp. Luckily I have tons of relatives in that state so my son and I will stay with relatives while my daughter is at camp.
The “pre-trip” to Minnesota is a great way to test out our current bag situation while we are still stateside. Right now our bags are too big for my liking. However, my daughter’s bag also has twice the clothes she needs as she is going to camp. My son has more shorts than he needs. I did pack ski bibs in both kids bags but I have decided those are coming out.
My parents will be visiting my uncle a few days after my son and I leave his house so the winter gear and my sons clothes will likely stay there and then my parents will bring them to us. My daughters items I will be shipping home to a neighbor.
Hopefully this time next week our bags will not be as big!
