For the first time ever, Mason is going to sleep away camp. It's only about 1.5 hours from our home, but for a kid that's never been away from home, it's really far. He'd been so excited and not afraid at all for the past month leading up to it, but when it came time for us to leave, he started to cry.
His cabin. Of course everyone was helping him unload his gear.
His bunk. Excellent location right next to the air conditioner.
The tears and resulting group hug.
The camp instructions specifically said not to call unless there is an emergency. Does texting count? It's not really "calling". Right?
With my last sight of him crying, I couldn't stand not knowing if he was adjusting, so I texted the camp director and was later informed that he was "doing great".
