Logan and Macie
Logan has great memories of going to 6th grade camp with his own Dad many moons ago.
So of course he wanted to do all he could to take Chandler this year, as he did Austin a few years back.
Grandpa with ChandlerThis year, however, the rules have changed. Parents can no longer just go free as chaperons. They have to pay just like the kids.
So they figured out he and Chandler needed to sell 700 candy bars to earn their way to camp. Logan got all the kids involved and spent 4 different days with them sitting outside grocery stores. One of his sisters didn't want to sell them and Logan told her, "You will be blessed for doing this. When you want to go to camp, you will have your brothers and sisters helping you sell the candy bars."

Den and I were just about to start eating dinner one night, when we learned they were selling the candy at Savemart, which is just down the street from us. I told Den, and he said in typical Dennis style, "Let's Go!"
I stuffed my pockets with the 20 candy bars we bought.
And we don't even eat chocolate, or candy.
Such is the life of grandparents.
So far they have sold 550 candy bars, with just 150 to go!
The way time flies, soon these babies will be selling candy bars so they can go to camp!
If I get the courage, tomorrow I will tell about something that happened the night before my oldest son attended 6th grade camp back in 1988.
