It's so hard to believe how quickly kids grow up.... just yesterday it seems I was changing diapers and burping them and in no time they will be enlisting in the Navy or graduating from college, or something else very adult-like. Today, unbelievably, we dropped them off at camp where they will be away from us for several nights. I don't know where the time has gone, but as they were running away to meet their new friends in their cabins, I felt my heart sink a bit!
I've been glancing at the clock every hour or so, pausing to wonder what they are up to. I am sure they are loving every second of it and having a fantastic time -- making wonderful summer time memories!
When we dropped them off, we walked them around to see where their cabins where, add money to their Camp Store account and check in with the Camp Nurse. I could see they just wanted to go.... go and have fun and talk to the other kids. So I kept the goodbye brief and happy, sent them off with a hug and kiss and they took off before I could think of anything wise to pass on to them.
