Your collection of adventures

My son took off for his first week away from home without a parent by his side.  He is reasonably ready.  Seems psychologically prepared- was able to talk himself through his nerves as he gave me a big hug good-bye.  I kept it upbeat and positive.  That's your job as a parent:  no matter how much YOU are nervous, you have to put on your game face as healthy encouragement for them.

But, it was harder than I thought it would be!  For me, that is.  I can't wait to see him again on Friday. . .

He's already had some practice with being adventurous.  He's pretty well-travelled for a 10 year old, of which I'm proud.  We are not rich, by any means, but we like to spend our money and time on trips and new experiences.

Here are a couple of pictures from our 'mother-son' trip to London over Thanksgiving break.  What a fantastic week with my little man!

So, Adam, you can add this week to your long list of adventures.  We will see you back home, safe and sound, on Friday.
