Will at summer camp!





Will appears to be having a great time at summer camp in King, NC!




I say 'appears' because there is no contact except checking the site's photo album daily to see if you can find your kid. You know he's loving THAT! lol.

Anyway, just wanted to share the photos as I'm feeling nostalgic since he's not here. It's very quiet at the homestead with Will at Camp and Joey at Annual Training!

Will and I had a great weekend with Bethany (lilgirlbigvoice) in Charlotte last weekend prior to taking Will to camp on Sunday. We went to the farmer's market, made raw treats in the dehydrator, and had zucchini 'pasta' in a beautiful uptown park with all the cranes you could ever want, lol. Met some new friends there at the park who brought raw brownies w/ vanilla cream sauce and yummy watermelon. (thank you madpryor!) We sat there until the sun set and relaxed and talked. Bliss. I have photos to prove all this, but I have to find my camera! I will try to post them tonight.




Sunday morning we hated to leave Bethany, our new friend, but Will was really excited about camp, so we went.



The drive up to King was amazing and peaceful. We marveled at the trees and mountains, blue skies and farmlands. When we got up to camp, I graciously offered to stay there in his place... I wanna go to summer camp! He wasn't buying it though. After hauling his gear off to cabin 14, I headed for the hills. (oh wait, I was already in the hills, lol)



I never knew that I loved driving by myself. Peace. Tranquility. Mountains. Valleys. Rest Areas. Farmer's markets in roadside buildings. Perfect life. Perfect weekend.

I can see it being a bitter sweet experience--missing him, but enjoying some quiet alone time. I'm sure he's going to have all kinds of tales to share with you about his summer camp experiences!

I'm looking forward to seeing you both when you pick him up!!! I'm super excited to meet you in person, Joanna! :-D

Lots and lots of love to you,

Wendi
XOXOXO
