i dropped my two middle kids at camp on tuesday.
then annie and i had mama time all day wednesday and thursday morning.
then i dropped her off for a short First Camp.
she was quite nervous.
she doesn't like to be away from me overnight… and really doesn't like to be away from talby at night.
to help her week go smoothly i slept in her room tuesday and wednesday night.
the nerves were high on thursday but she did SO GOOD.
she wanted to go to this camp so badly.
all her friends were going and i knew she would have a blast if she could get over the nervousness.
and she did!
(and now My Little Girl by tim mcgraw is playing on Pandora and i am crying!!!)
i am excited for her to have an awesome super short two nights at camp.
and everytime i think "what if…" then i recall that there is nothing i can do and she will be fine.
it is hard to be a mama.
i am thrilled to have ONE day alone with no kids.
but my heart is all over the world right now!
three at camp… one at his aunt & uncles and one in Honduras on a missions trip.
i think i will snuggle in with mr. duerksen and let it go.
my kids made our summer list while i was making dinner because i was taking too long getting it done.
i think it will be a good summer….
we have talked about going to africa as a family.
but since my african connection is in the states right now i don't think we will be going this summer.
but who knows… it IS on the list.
and i know you are dying to see what is on that little frame on the shelf…..
this was at my grandma's house i think so it came back home to me 30 years later.
this was my second grade school picture.
my kids think it should be on display apparently.
man…. i loved that dress soooooo much. i felt very pretty when i wore that.
i liked black & white all the way back then too. :)
did you make a summer list?
if you would like to see out past SUMMER LISTS you can check them here.
this is the 2011 version
writing the list helps us with ideas on slow days.
or something to look forward to in the days to come.
it is OK to not complete it.
but it is really fun to get everything checked off too!
i will pick a winner for TREX OUTDOOR FURNITURE GIVEAWAY when i get home tonight
from my hot date with my husband.
it's going to be… steamy.
i sure do like that guy.
what are you doing on this first Friday of summer?
