Two weeks later...

I dropped my son off at a summer camp two weeks ago. Tomorrow we are heading back to the camp to pick him up. He had a really great time I am sure about it, but I am ready for him to come home.

I miss him so much...

Our life is upside down at the moment; we need to move soon , but he is unaware all of this. We thought we leave his vacation undisturbed it is enough if he learns about the facts tomorrow.

We need to leave early to make it back and forth in one day. It is more than three hours drive just to get there. We want to spend a little time then head back home.

The son of our friends could have brought him home today but I feel that a will be good for my mood.

I am glad that he spent some good time at camp. Moving is rough! Hope it all goes smoothly!

Thank you JanetHunt I am a bit worried breaking the bad news for him.

I'm sure he'll be able to adjust to the new environment. More than 3 hours isn't that far away from his old friends, anyway. I had to move between continents when I was 11.

I would love to go pick my girls up at camp, but that isn't in the cards for us. My oldest is up in Whitehorse working as a staff cadet in the Operations section of the summer training camp there. She left about 2 weeks ago, and still has 5 more to go. My middle daughter leaves for a camp in the Okanagan in roughly two weeks. She'll be training as a piper there for three weeks before she returns home to us. Both girls had to fly to get to camp, and will be returning home on the same day. We haven't got travel orders for our middle girl yet, but we're hoping she has the same flight back from Vancouver, so she can sit with her sister :)

As a father I understand your apprehensions kelemenk . I would rather leave children out about grown up stuff; but in the end they do have to know because it will help them mature as a person. Breaking it to him gently will help a lot while reassuring him that things will work just fine eventually emoticon :smile:

Wow I am sure you are ready to see him, I know I would be if it were mine. LOL and he is probably ready to come home to.
