I suggest you roughly resize them in Photoshop to the size you want them to print on the page with a resolution of around 300ppi.
Keep the images in RGB color mode and Place them as PSD files in InDesign so you can round trip to Photoshop to do more work on them if necessary. After placing check the Effective Resolution in InDesign to ensure you have a resolution between 250 and 300ppi.
Thank you Derek, that's my problem, I don't know what size I want them to print on the page. lol I know that sounds crazy to you all who are pro's. I think I will save them all at their original size and change the resolution to 300 and then downsize them to maybe around 1200? I guess this is going to be trial and error. Thanks.

When you scale a placed image in InDesign you are resizing–not resampling the image pixels. Scaling in ID is the same as unchecking Resample in Photoshop's Image Size dialog. Because your camera is setting the resolution to 72ppi, the image's output (print) dimensions are 59.333" x 39.556". By default InDesign uses the output dimensions at 100% when you place.
In PS you can uncheck Resample in Image Size and set the output dimension to a more manageable size without losing resolution. If you do that you will have more flexibility when you scale in InDesign—there will be more effective resolution available in the page layout.
With Resample off, changing the width maintains the image pixel dimensions and the resolution increases accordingly.
Thank you very much for that explanation Rob.
