Tonight was Big J’s first overnight campout as a 11 year-old scout. I am not sure I am ready for this new phase in his life. I am
way a little over-protective of my children. I feel much better when everyone is sleeping under the same roof.
He still wasn’t feeling all that great so we hopped him up on Motrin had him take a shower and see if he really felt like going.
He said he did. I am not sure I believe him, but how can you tell him he can’t go. And really what do I know about sick kiddos? (see previous post).
You can see in his eyes he still isn’t feeling 100%.
I think I felt a little better about him going since they are camping about 3 miles from our house and not up in the mountains.
And the fact that Big Daddy was going to be going with him was comforting also.
Seriously, am I really ready for this whole scouting thing?
I guess it doesn’t really matter, because he is.
(Even if his face looks like he isn't sure about this whole over-night thing!)
I think I will be more supportive of Boy Scouts than Cub Scouts, and really we don’t want to get me started on the whole Cub Scout subject.
