I have a 7 year old and 11 year old. They pack and then I check to make sure they have everything. The trip we took this week they did a great job. Of course my 7 year old didn't match everyday, but she has her own sense of style and I just go with it. The day she had diagonal multi-color striped skort and a horizontal red striped shirt was interesting, but it's one of her favorite outfits. Pictures will make for interesting conversations when she gets older.
