i tried to be strong.
i tried to not embarrass him by asking for one more hug.
he has been waiting for this week all summer.
but when he walked up the stairs of that bus,
i got tears in my eyes.
my oldest went off to nature camp this week.
it is just a day camp.
he rides the bus to a camp that is about 100 blocks away from our house.
he will play in creeks, learn about animals and be unplugged for 8 hours each day.
i am looking forward to the 4:15 pick up to hear all about his day.
i always say that being a mom is one of the toughest jobs.
the teaching, cooking, cleaning, shopping for necessities, making sure they are safe etc.
but i think two of the toughest days are sending them off on that first day of school,
sending them off to camp.
is it 4:15 yet?
update: first day of camp...he LOVED it! whew...tomorrow should be easier for me! :)
