My little boy comes home from 6th grade camp today. He has been gone since Monday. It was harder than I thought it would be because, they wouldn't let him take his cell phone. So, I haven't talked to him since Monday morning. We think we want a break from our kids, then when we get one we miss them and worry about them. This time was a little harder than usual because, I haven't been away from him for more than two days. It has always been him at a friends house or my husband and I went out of town. But, I could always check on them and see how they are doing. It is really hard on a parent to have their child gone for three nights and not be able to talk to them. I can understand their point by not allowing them to bring cell phones, but it's hard on the parents. We just like to know our children are okay. I guess we have to learn to let go a little someday. It's just sooner than I expected.
