Another stage passes...

This morning my daughter left for Girl Scout camp. It occurred to me as she left that there probably has not been a day in her 11 years in which I have not spoken to her. Now I have to do 5. Whew!

She has been completely ecstatic about going. They will be up in the mountains with lakes and horses. Her usual hesitation about lions and moose in the mountains was not even broached. When her ride came, she jumped in the car and instantly started giggling with her friend. We are blessed.

I had similar feelings when my oldest took a trip to Washington DC when he was 14. I worried about the big city, crime, he might miss his flight... He had no doubts about the trip could not wait to go. Come to think of it he was the same way in kindergarten...His mother tearfully dropped him off and watched he take is seat in the classroom and he told her, "you can go now!" It is so much fun to watch them grow!

That is so exciting! I hope she has fun! (I'm sure she will.)

I went to Oakcrest LDS camp with a friend when I was a kid. It was awesome. I didn't want to come home and I cried when I had to. (Most of the girls did actually.)
