Leaving on a jet plane...


Rush left last Wednesday for IYC in Orlando, FL. I've gotten 3 texts and 1 phone call from him. The first 2 texts were good- telling me they had arrived, it was HOT, the conference was good, he was tired. Then he texted me asking me to make sure I packed his ukelele and music for Family Camp... Then he called me to make sure I got the message. He didn't tell me about the conference, or how hot it was, or the thunderstorms, or anything except making sure I packed his uke. I'm just wondering if I've instilled a little too much independence in him...

On the other hand, this morning I sent Arin and Isaac off to Boy Scout Camp and if they were allowed to bring a phone I'd already have heard from both of them and I don't think I'd be hearing highlights...


  1. Isn't it funny how unique they all are? Following from MM. :)

  2. It's amazing how each of them handle traveling and communicating so differently.

    So glad you joined in on the Mingle Monday fun!


  3. just amazing how different our children can be! I would have different responses from all of my children as well! Stopping by from Mingle Monday!

  4. The house is going to be a lot quieter for awhile! What a sweet family you have :)
