Tough Time for Dad

Today we dropped our oldest daughter off at summer camp for the first time. It is a 10 day session at a camp which our church helps support. We've been there for Family Camp and various retreats. The kids regular babysitter is her counselor, and she is signed up for archery, fishing, wilderness survival and scrapbooking. We know most of the staff. She'll probably have a great time, but Dad is finding it pretty hard. I'm half-way hoping I get one of those phone calls from the staff tell me she's upset and asking me to come and pick her up, because it means she'll be back home with us again. But of course ultimately I hope she has a great 10 day experience. It's going to be a long 10 days for me.
