I can't believe it!! Our oldest son is headed today to "SCIENCE CAMP" for 3 days!
This will be his first "big" trip away from home...and, I'm not going to lie...a little bit of me is dying inside!
(of course he hasn't looked like this in 11 years, but it still feels like he's my baby)
Of course, I'd never let him know that...but I can't believe he's old enough to leave home for a few days. Of course, it's with his school and he will be thoroughly supervised and monitored...but still! HE IS GROWING UP!
(Packed and ready to head out...)
His bags are packed with all the necessities for the next few days of adventures! Seems like just yesterday, I was headed out to SCIENCE CAMP! What great memories I have from that experience! That was my first "BIG TIME" away from home too! If my memories are that vivid still, how is it possible that I have son old enough to be headed out for his own experience at camp? I hope he has an amazing time and comes home with story after story of adventure and great times!
Meanwhile, at home...our house will be a little quieter (although he's the quiet kid in the house anyway) and we will have one less mouth to feed for a couple days. I'll have one less kid to tuck into bed at night and one less child to get ready for school in the morning! I guess this is a good way to break me into the idea that one day...he will be leaving home FOR REAL!!
If you have a chance, pray for safety for the whole group as they go!
Pray for each child and every parent sending their kids out for the first time!
Pray they have an amazing time...and come home safe and sound!
