Dear Nathan...

Well, it's been one full day since you've been gone. I sure miss you! Daddy and I keep checking the radar to see if it's raining at your camp ground. It looked like you might have gotten wet this morning! I hope your clothes are still dry!

We missed you at mass this morning! We went early so mommy could go to confession. For once, there was only one person in front of me. The girls behaved...pretty well. They earned a doughnut! I talked to Mrs. Bailey. Colin is going to come for a play date the week after you come home. He's looking forward to it! I also saw Mrs. Thornton after mass. She said to tell you that she's really proud of you for going on this camping trip. She said she would pray for you!

I hope you are having a wonderful time and that you are being good! Tonight, when I went to Adoration, I said my whole rosary for you and the other boys at the camp. I hope you get some quiet time to listen to what God might be trying to say to you. I also hope you are making some life long friendships.

Oh, Grandma and Franny called to see if you got off ok! They wanted to know if I cried when I said good-bye to you. I told them NO! If you're brave enough to go on this camp/retreat for a week to learn more about your faith.....then I'm brave enough to let you!

I love you and I miss you.
Love,
Mom

This is great! Cute boy! I love that your Mass and time in Adoration were spent praying for your son and that his time away will be faith-filled!
