Off to Camp I Go!!

I leave with my oldest tomorrow for a week of Camping fun. This will be her first year sleeping over night in a cabin and making memories that will last a life time I'm sure. I volunteered to be the sports coordinator and second leader in her cabin so I could be at the camp with her.

I'm not ready to completely let her go and be on her own. Not at a camp full of strangers....not at 7 years old. No way no how. Besides...Last year we had a BLAST!!

So....Me and my 7 month pregnant belly are headed to camp.

I'm not worried as I did the same thing last year when she was a day camper and so I know what to expect. I also have more help this year and so I'm doing more of a 'directing' role. Most of my work is planning and does not involve me doing the actual sport.

However I'm NOT looking forward to sharing a room with a complete stranger. I don't like that sort of thing. Well, I think more than that I'm going to miss my husband and 2 other kids a LOT more than last year.
We have had only had a few days together since his return from the Ukraine, and I don't want to leave my 2 babies for a week.


I'm sure it will be fun and a chance to bond with my eldest for a week, but I don't want to go.

Pray for me please.

Pray for sleep and strength of body, but more than that please pray that I am able to focus on the other kids at the camp, focus on God and the stillness he offers in solitude, and pray that I actually feel mentally refreshed as a mother wife and Christian upon my return.

Gotcha. Have a great time.

I like your last paragraph. I have a feeling that all that will happen, and more. The sky's the limit (actually, it isn't).
