As most of you know Kain was at camp last week. I was very nervous about him going for a whole week. Would he remember to take a bath, eat, drink plenty of water, change his clothes,or put sunscreen on? He left on Monday and FINALLY called on Tuesday only because another mother had to tell him to CALL HIS MOTHER! I guess he was having too much fun to talk to his mommy:( When he called I asked was he having fun? Did you put on sunscreen? It may seems like I am a little obsessed with him putting on sunscreen,and I am! When you have fair skinned red heads they don’t tan they BURN! I mean like water blister,3rd degree burn! Of course his reply to my question was, “ I forgot to put it on today,and now I am FRIED!” See I knew he couldn’t make it a whole week without me;) I begged him to please remember to put it on!
Thursday night was family night,so Corey,Noah and myself headed to Anderson University (that is where camp was held). I was SO excited to see him,and hear all about what he was doing. He walked through the door ,ran straight over and told me how much he missed me. I know sweet,right? Too bad that was only what I hoped would happen. He didn’t want to be within 5 feet of us,or really talk to us. I am so not liking this stage where it’s not cool to “like” your parents in front of your friends! Of course I MADE him take a family picture. When we went into the room he sat one row in front of us,and during family prayer time didn’t want to be with his family. I am not going to lie when I say this “stage” hurts this mamas feelings a lot! By the end of the night he wasn’t as mortified to be seen with us!
see how red his face is! I should of got a close up of the WATER blisters on his neck and ears!
Yes, I made him take a picture with his friends at family night! I know,I am a horrible mother! Look at all those sunburned boys!
Here are some pictures that our Youth pastor took, thanks Stephen:)
This is the whole pre teen group! Kain is in the front row of all of the pictures. Or you could just look for the boy who is “fried”!
Boy, was I glad when Friday came,and I picked him up! He had a blast,and can’t wait to go back next year. I may not even be “allowed” to go to family night then…lol! As soon as he got home he fell right to sleep! I was so happy to have my baby home:)
( this was the camp shirt and you can see how red his neck is!)
