I posted on Facebook that Sally was my favorite child one day last week, because she sent me the first letter from camp. A week had gone by and it was the only camp letter. Those keeping track at home- know that there has been a second letter received from Sally and updates from friends and family that she has corresponded with them as well. Note Nana isn't too pleased to have only received the fill in the blank form notes that I thought were cute. Bonus points were given to Sally for making it into the photo gallery on the camp website with big smiles. I know Clare is doing well as I've seen her in pictures and even a video showcasing the "Ghany Give" effort. Of course that is close to my heart.
Today's favorite child is Peter.
Each of our children are special and delight me, frustrate me, challenge me and make me proud. Life on Newark-Granville Road is completed because of these three darlings. I miss them at this time of year. I embrace and love the change of pace, the quiet, the clean, the Joe/Susan time. Most of all I love what this time gives them- new friends, renewed friends, appreciation and memories of special places that we now share.
