I didn't realize what a big deal this would be for us until I saw him today. Yesterday at 1pm Andrew went over to his friends house to join them and a few other friends on a camping trip to Baker Park Reserve. Scott couldn't get the time off of work, and I couldn't afford a campsite, so our good friends offered to take him along. He comes back tomorrow late afternoon. I went out to visit with them for half the day today and he was doing just fine. Very tired, kinda dirty, definately didn't want to leave. It became clear to me just how independent he is these days in so many ways. So much his own person. I was surprised how hard it was to drive away. I was surprised how much I want to get up early tomorrow morning and drive back out there. The ravine you see toward the end of the slideshow is right behind the campsites they reserved. The kids were in heaven!
