Saying Goodbye: Abbeys first Overnight Camp

I drove abbey up to Cascade Camp Cedarbrook today. This is her first overnight camp, which means it’s the longest that she’s gone away from home on her own. Cyn & I discussed that there are a few times when WE have left the home on a trip, but we usually leave the kiddos with a friend or family member… so that makes this different because in this case, Abbey is the one doing the leaving.

I just talked to a friend about when she dropped her child off at college, and how that separation felt so real and difficult. I know that dropping your child off at camp is not the same thing as college, but as I watched her walk towards her cabin, and disappear from view, I felt a small piece of that separation.

A & me, at Suncadia, right before the drop off.
