Goodbye Week. Hello Weekend. Lessons Learned: Take 96.

Goodbye sending Kiddo off to 5th Grade Camp for 3 whole days.
Goodbye 30-degree temperature drop in those 3 days!
Goodbye getting all of those pesky little errands and tasks done.
Goodbye getting that organizing bug and wanting to clear out the whole house and wondering why this bug happens to hit me when summer is about to start?
Goodbye time spent with my mom, shopping and hanging out without any time constraints.

Hello lots and lots of dirty laundry from camp.
Hello pulling out Kiddo's camp experience like teeth: What did you do those 3 days, sweetie? "Nothing" - ugh!
Hello Jersey Boardwalk open for business - congrats to Restoring the Shore!
Hello BBQ's, time spent with friends, and remembering why we have our freedoms.
Hello white shoes and flowing skirts; Happy Memorial Day Weekend.

The lesson learned for this week is how much I love the resilience of the human spirit. Watching the Jersey Shore comeback fills your heart with hope as you see their determination to get back what they once had come into reality. Oklahoma is going to do the same after their tornado devestation. It's not even a question, they just are. The human spirit is a hard one to break, even after Mother Nature has had her way with it. But, we pull through, heading in only one direction: forward.

I was wrong. Ever since we picked up Kiddo at school from camp he's been talking non-stop! It sure seems like he had a great time. Kiddo even apologized for NOT missing us. Oh, Kiddo!
