Eureka! We found the solution! It’s a bongo bag!
Perhaps you’ve noticed that boys are challenged by getting dirty laundry into a bag. But give them a bongo and it’s a game of yucky-sock basketball. Every Sunday the bongo gets emptied into a magical bag that gets taken away in a big white truck. Then, "Poof!" - it comes back clean and folded a couple of days later. Cool part of the bag is that it opens on the side like a suitcase, so all stays folded when you put it away.

Finished off the day by taking 350 people to the ballpark. It was the Portland Seadogs vs the New Hampshire Fisher Cats at Hadlock Field. We sat together, proudly wearing our Skylemar colors. Quinn B caught a foul ball, and we were featured on the giant screen singing “Sweet Caroline”. The kids loved the snack bar, especially because whatever you ordered came inside a batting helmet. Sea Biscuits were the traditional favorite. That’s two really good chocolate chip cookies with ice cream inside... puts the standard Chipwich to shame.
Following the Seadogs win came the dazzling fireworks. Amazing!
Best part of the night for this camp director was hearing what another patron had to say: “You can pass on the word that this old guy thought you were a well-behaved crowd. I’d go to a game with you anytime.”
