Scout Camp

Christian left for scout camp today.
One week.
He
has 
never 
been 
away
for 
this 
long.
He is with a group of 12 and 13 year old boys.
He looked so young and little compared to those other boys.
He was bouncy.
Nervous.
Excited.
 Puppy-like enthusiasm flowed from him.  It was stark next to the "cool" mellow movements of the older boys.
I hope he's okay.
I hope he's not scared.
I hope he's laughing.
I keep forgetting he's gone and keep calling for him.

I know one day he will leave and it will be more permanent,
but that is not this day.
Right now he is still young.
Right now he still lives at home.
Right now he is still teachable and impressionable
and right now is what I'm thankful for.
