All this week we have been shopping, labeling everything and packing. I have known about this for a while but it didn't really register until last week. I am a combination of happy, proud and sad - he tells me don't worry Mom we have I-Phone Facetime so it will be just like I'm there. I can remember when I was his age going away for the summer to sleep away camps in Minnesota, North Carolina, Canada and even traveling to Spain for several summers. So I understand logically that this will be great for him but it doesn't mean I won't miss having him around. Oh well I still have one more year of him around until he goes off to a music conservatory far away.
My girlfriend is jealous, she says she wishes that her kids would go away for the summer. My friends have already started making plans for movies, spa day, dinners, etc. so I am sure that the summer will breeze right by and maybe I will put my ad back up and see if I can meet someone special...we'll see. This could be the summer of me - I like it!!
