Bekah heads to overnight camp for the 1st time – ever

Who had to fight tears? Yep, the mom who’s never had to send her baby away. Yep, I home school her, spend most moments with her, never parted to send her to kindergarten, and am now dealing with the tears of my youngest child growing enough to head to the 2nd – 5th grade, one night away, in Issaquah, camp experience. Wow. How time flies. Our pastor put it best the other day when he referred to time passing by saying “Trust me, I’m sending my preschooler to college in the fall!”

Getting checked in with Ms. Kim

Jordan and Bekah say good bye

Love, love, love

"Bye" some more

Sitting on the bus with friends brought smiles

Alderwood Community Church bus - hopefully it doesn't break down...

Carolina, Bekah, and Bella - roomies!

When Bekah returned she said she missed me lots, but others reported that she did just fine.

In the notebook she brought, I found the following:

“It was so fun. the chaple was lowd [loud] we sang the bannana song on and we sang a tatet atutetu the song was a holy god song and I loved it so much”

Don’t recall what the song was, but she sure loved it.

Next year ought to be easier…

(While Bekah was gone, the remaining family members watched Avatar. Liked it!)
