Last week I wrote about my daughter going away to camp for the first time and the feelings for me that surrounded that moment in her life. Many of you told me that it would be a good experience for her and that she would be home before I knew it. Well, everyone was right!
She came home with so many stories about all the activities at the camp. She had a great time and has already told me she wants to go back next year. The camp gave each camper a photo album with pictures of them involved in all of the activities (from their arrival to all the water sports). It was great for me to see all of the pictures and see her in action. As soon as she got up to her room, she began writing about all of her adventures. She told me she is saving the writing and the pictures to share when school begins.
It was wonderful for me to see her refer back to writing and how excited she was about getting all of the memories on paper. Now, I have the laundry and the ant colony in her bag to contend with!
