A Week of Quiet
Chef is sleeping at a Boy Scout camp a few hours away. It should be a lot of fun for him, with swimming, pottery, hiking, and a bunch of other activities on tap. For the kid who complains that his troop doesn't camp enough (despite going every month), this should be an amazing week.
Of course, Game Teen is home. The agreement is that he does not go camping unless Ed or I join him. That was before the Chiari diagnosis, so now I really don't see it happening. I think he prefers this, because he gets his pick of the video games all week.
The only strange part will be that Chef spends his 11th birthday away from home. That's okay, we'll celebrate when he gets home...
