Packing up to leave for camping with former church family today. We have been a foster family, so the last two years we took 8 family members camping. This year it's just me and DS15 and DD11. Feeling a little melancholy about that. Don't get me wrong, waaaay easier to pack only three, but, strange. Last year both long term foster daughters went to adoptive families two weeks before I discovered STBXs EA and kicked him out. It has been a grieving year.
DDs 17 and 19 are working, so can't come camping. I will be with many friends, so that's going to be a blessing. And the weather should be nice. Hoping for a good couple days.
On Sunday, DD17, DS15, DD11 and I leave for Jr Hi Church camp. This should be a fun and exhausting time. My two older kids and I are counselors and it's my youngest's first week at church camp. At least being out of town will keep me NC with STBX (see previous post). We had planned last year to go to JR HI camp as a whole family. So feeling a bit sad about that as well.
