A Break With Shorty

I love the first day of camp. The excitement, the energy, the fact that kids are still just scared enough of you to behave.

But I also love the last day when the bus pulls away. Because I miss my quiet.

So tonight -- on a last day, after our weekly family reunion has appeared -- I'm quite relieved to be sitting in my quiet living room, chatting with this kid.

 
I've gotten that look quite a few times over the years. And I've deserved most of them.

Sometimes I wish I was close enough to just hang out with my sister occasionally. As of July 1st, both of my parents will be a record low of four hours from me but Meredith is still around 10 hours drive from here.

Anyway, enjoy the family time!
