Micah Goes to Camp

This is my sweet sleepy headed little Micah John on the drive to be dropped off for church camp this week. He's nine years old. I wasn't going to let him go to camp until he was ten, like I did with Jarod & Seth. But he wanted to go sssoooooooo badly. I know the children's minister & helpers a lot better than I did a year ago, when we were fairly new to our church. I know they do an AWESOME job with the kids. It's only two hours away. And, really.............would YOU be able to disappoint that cute little face??? Micah is an easy-going, sweet kid who doesn't ask for much. I had to let him go. But that doesn't mean I have to LIKE it.
                                        Brother hug!!!!!

                                       All ready to go!!!!!!!!


                               So excited to spend the week with his buds!!!!!


                                            Group hug!!!!!!!


             On the bus! I think he's a little too happy to be leaving me.


                      Boys dog-piled on Jarod while we waited to wave goodbye to the bus. Seth had disappeared somewhere with a friend who was there. While this still looks like a lot of boys, there will be a big hole in my heart until Micah is home.


          However..........we are ALL going camping this week (in a couple days). Coincidentally, of course. In the near vicinity of Micah's camp. Of course.....that is also a coincidence.

         Oh, but......if they see a strange woman lurking in the bushes outside the camp ground with a pair binoculars, it's not me. Nope.

I know how you feel. I am the mother of 3 boys, and my oldest went to visit his grandparents and there was a huge hole in my heart. You are a brave momma. :D
