Our 8 year old left today for camp! He will be gone a week. I am so excited for him. When I was a kid, there were 3 highlights of each year; my birthday, Christmas, and camp.... And now-- to see my oldest go off on his own like that! Wow- it is a milestone.
This morning we wrote letters to him, went to the post office, and then to drown our sorrows in snow cones :)
Which flavor? One of us got orange, one of us got pineapple (me) and my second son (who will not be leaving me for camp for 2 more years) got grape-bubble gum-blue raspberry.
