Off He Goes...My Boy Is Growing Up!

It's hard for me to believe that I've had this blog going now since May of 2006!  You all have watched my son go from a 6 year old boy to an 11 year old young man.  This morning he headed out on his very first week long Boy Scout Camp.  It's strange knowing that he'll be gone a whole week (the house is already so quiet).  He had many feelings going on within him this morning.  The main one being that he didn't want to go and that we couldn't make him.  He's right in that we couldn't make him go but when it came time to go he did get into the car willingly and once we got there he wanted nothing to do with his Mom saying goodbye to him.  I know that he'll have a ton of fun once he's there and sees all the fun that he's going to have but there is that part of me as a Mom that wonders how he is doing every second of every day.

I only have the photo of him in front of the house and of the vehicle that he was in as they were pulling out as my camera battery was dying on me.  Below you can also see a video of the camps here in the Texas Longhorn Council.  His camp is at the 2 minute 50 second point.  There is a part of me that wishes I could be there with him as it looks like a ton of fun but this year needs to be about him.  Maybe in one of the years to come I'll go...we'll just have to wait and see.
