He is There.....

We spent all weekend packing up and making sure Davin had everything he needed for camp.  It was all a bit overwhelming to try to write down everything that his counselor needed to know, but thankfully I have a bossy boy and Davin will help his counselor out if needed:-) 

This morning, Davin, Ashleigh and I headed out and drove an hour to Camp Malaga.  Davin was checked out (he offered to show his stomach, of course, but they did not find that necessary), checked in, and got a new camp t-shirt.  (Of course we put it on right away!)  I stayed for a little while and showed Sam (Davin's counselor) where I had put things in his bag and then showed how I feed him. 

Then, it was time....I wasn't sure how I would feel leaving him, but I just knew.  I knew it was time.  He was ready to start the camp experience and he couldn't do that while I was there.  God was gracious and gave me enough time to feel comfortable that Davin was in great hands.  It also helped that his counselor has been doing this for 20 years. God so knows I am a baby step kind of girl. 

Here is a picture of Davin and Sam:-)


P.S.  I have already received a phone call from the camp nurse.  Just Davin up to his old tricks:-)

You are a brave, good mom! I am sure Davin will have such a good time. I hope you can enjoy a little rest from caretaking. If you're like me you will eat your lunch is two minutes before you realize what you've done!

Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing time without him. We all need that break! And then it's SO wonderful to see them again! :)

Sam looks like he is very capable and has a big heart. I hope Davin has a great time!

Old tricks? Oh my. haha.
