Sleepover Camp

This past week A has been away at sleepover camp, and it’s been a new experience for us, as I’m sure it is for her, as well. She was so excited and thrilled at the prospect of being away with her friends for a week, and I don’t blame her for one second. It’s been a little harder on our end because we sure miss her.

This is the first time that A has been away for this long, and I think it’s a great experience. It’s probably a little too early for N, though when we dropped A off, you could tell that he was a little envious. Plus, he really misses his sister, she’s such a big part of his life. Then again, it’s good for him to develop his own things because at some point their lives/interests will seriously diverge.

A benefited from having several of her friends at the camp, and they were all bunk mates. We drove her over and got the whole informational lecture from the staff. Afterward, we said goodbye, but you could tell she was already off and running. I’m glad she’s excited, and hope that this will be the first of many camps that she can enjoy.

In the meantime, we can all sit here and pine away for her. Until the next time, thanks for reading.
