And, that being said...THEY'RE GONE AT CAMP FOR A WHOLE WEEK!!!!!!!!
We dropped these cuties off yesterday and now it's just Trey and Me all week long! Ok, ok. And Sadie, Dea, and Darius. Dang! Why do you have to be so specific?
Anyway, we are down 50% of our children for a whole week, Dea and Darius can drive themselves to the hospital if anything happens to them and Sadie is going to Camp Nanny and Bunty for a couple of days. I've gotta be honest people, I may take a break from blogging and enjoy the quiet. Not that y'all are loud or anything, I just can't wait to relax a little.
My friend Carey, who organizes people for a living, got all giddy when I told her I was going to be empty-nesting it for a few days and her first reaction was, "That is so DREAMY!!! We need to find a project for you to do since you'll be alone-ish in your house!"
See, that's what I love about friends. We can be so, so, different and still love each other. She got extra doses of the gene I didn't get at birth and I'm going to embrace that fact this week and maybe read a book.
Right now, along with Tim Keller's Counterfeit Gods, I'm reading A Mercy by Toni Morrison. Any other suggestions?
And just so you'll know I'm not totally heartless, I met Bill McKenzie, the founder of Pine Cove yesterday and cried telling him how much his camp has meant to our own children and Mercy Street. Week 11, we'll be heading back as Mercy Street takes 120 kids down to Pine Cove Outback for the kids' favorite weeks of the year.
We love ourselves some Pine Cove in this community!
And in this home. This very, very, quiet home.
