I let Nevin go to Camp Courageous for the week. This is his third year. The first year was torture, the second year much easier.
This year...... a little harder. I'm not sure why.
Maybe because it was such a hubbub getting ready this year. At the same time I was packing him, I was getting ready to leave for a long weekend to Indiana with dd (she was in a wedding)............ so I left Friday morning before he was up......... and then wasn't going to be able to see him before dh took him to camp on Sunday. However, we ran a little ahead of schedule so I was able to "show up" and get a couple hugs and drop him off at camp.
Maybe it was because I spent a couple days before I left doing some "crisis management" with dd..... and Nevin didn't get much attention.
Maybe it was because last year, I knew he had an outstanding counselor (from some inside information). And this year, it appeared he had a counselor in her first year and first week. And I lost my "insider info source" this year.
Maybe it was because we dropped him off at the very end of the "window of time" to register campers (because they were waiting for me to get home from Indiana) and so we didn't have any "hanging around" time before we left him.
and maybe it's just because....... like...... "just because"
Can you tell I miss him today? Boy, it's hard letting him grow up!
