Today my boy left for five days away at camp. He's going with our church and I know he's in good hands, but I don't think letting go, even a little bit, ever gets easier. J went last year for the first time ever and absolutely loved it, so I know he will have a wonderful time. He even knows a couple of friends who are in his group, which makes me really happy. As friendly and social as he is, he has a hard time opening up to new friends, so I'm always glad to know he's hanging around with a buddy or two.
In typical junior high style, he didn't let me make a fuss. He gave his dad and me each a hug, let me take this one picture and then he hopped on the bus to grab a seat.
I'll be saying prayers for the campers and their leaders for safe travels, fun adventures and quiet time for the Lord to work in their hearts these next five days. I can't wait to hear all about it on Tuesday!
