My original baby has been away this past week. He was in the back country with seven other boys, hiking and fishing and camping. He caught and cleaned and cooked rainbow trout out of high mountain lakes. He played in waterfalls and said he didn't miss us at all. He even FORGOT about us. That makes me very happy. He said they laughed A LOT.
We could have taken him camping, but it wouldn't be the same at all. He got to feel his way among a new group of friends. He did everything HIMSELF. He earned a nick-name.
He went with these folks. I highly recommend!
I am, however, glad that the ginja ninja is back under our roof.
I like having all my chicks in the nest.
