Well, it's been since 1997- 16 years since I had been to Camp Deer Run. My oldest was finally old enough to over night camp. I surprised him with a decorated trunk. He loved it! I used the Chalk Paint Pens to decorate it so we could reuse it for other stuff too.
It was hard driving off, but I knew he was in good hands. He would be covered by prayers. He would make friends and memories that would last a life time. Oh sweet boy. I love you! We emailed him every day along with family. He even wrote back- once. But, hey, he was only gone Sunday- Friday morning. I thought that was good.
