In our last episode Caleb was off frolicking at Summer Camp!
Our hero has since returned, to the land of bed times, little bothers (yup, meant to) and sissies and life-after-camp! At first you might think that it was a hard transition. But, to Caleb's credit he's been a stellar big brother and has transitioned back pretty nicely!
From a faith standpoint, Caleb drew closer to the LORD and connected with one of the camp counselors too! Julie and I are very proud!
From a parenting position, as much as we missed him we while he was gone, I think the break did him well. He came back tanned with stories of battling hornets, kayaking, catching a fish, playing gaga ball and more. I think it also gave him some time to cut loose away from his brothers and sisters. When you consider his special needs, it was, I think, an even greater opportunity! KUDOS to the Camp JIM personnel, who handled the C-man well!
The only problem I can see with camp down the road is--what do we do when his siblings are old enough to go too? We'll deal with that bridge when we get there. In the meantime, I need to pick Caleb's brain on fishing tips.
