Alex got home from camp today. I am glad camp is over until next year. I know they had fun, however I missed my boys.

Last night a friend asked Adam if he missed his brother, and he said no. He has been saying all week that he didn't miss his brother because he bugs him. Which is exactly what brothers are for. So last night we found out the truth when Little Adam pulled out a picture that he had in his pocket of his brother. It was all bent up, it looked like he was carrying it around all week. Awwwww!!

Today I picked Alex up from church. He walked over to me, and I gave him a big hug, and told him I missed him. He said he missed me too. I asked him if we had a good time, and he said "yeah, but I cried. I cried all because of you. Because I missed you." My heart melted. awwwww!!!

Laila our female boxer is 6 weeks pregnant. We haven't really know for sure if she was expecting puppies, but we are pretty sure now that in about 3-4 weeks we will have puppies. The other night, she was laying with me on the couch, and I was feeling her belly, and I felt puppies moving! Adam thinks I am loosing it, but I think it was a puppy. She is also nesting, she keeps going to our room, and tries to dig at our decorative pillows. I think, she thinks that that is were she is having her puppies, we have other plans.

Come back to check out her progress.

Summer Camp

Well, on Monday I took my oldest son to Church camp for a week. After standing in line for a while, we walked to the Boys Dorms, and got him settled in his room. It looks like there are about 8 other boys in the room with him, and one counselor in each room. I walked him to the cafateria, as we walked by the canteen stand that sold nothing but junk food, he said he wasn't hungry. I have a feeling he has already spent his money that I sent with him for the week. Hopefully he gets his spending habits from his Dad, and he will come home with money left. I tried to talk him into eating, and told him to make sure he remembers to eat before I headed to my car to leave him at camp for a week. Needless to say I was already missing him when I was walking to the car.

So, Adam comes back on Friday and Alex leaves for camp on Monday. I am getting more and more nervous about Alex going everyday. This is his first time being away from us, much less going to camp for the first time.

I will share some of my visions with you...

He goes to the bath-house to take a shower, and forgets his cloths in the dorn, and has to run back naked to get his cloths. If you know Alex, you know it sound like him.

He spends all his money in one day, and has no money left for the rest of the week.
I go to pick Alex up, and he is empty handed, he has lost all of his belongings.

As I shared some of my fears with another mom sending her daughter to camp for the first time as well, she shared with me one of hers. That her daughter would wear all of her cloths on the first day, and have no clean cloths for the rest of the week. I am sure she didn't mean to do this, but that just added to my list of fears, because if you know Alex, you know how he loves to layer his cloths, and has his own sense of style, and I can see him doing this also.
I know that everything is going to be great, and they are going to have a great time, and we are going to miss them terribly.
