difficult child left on the bus this morning to go to camp with the extended school year program. He had a bit of anxiety - this is a longer camping trip than he's been on in the past - but was excited to go - they have been promised a daily canoe trip and are putting on a dinner/dance and patriotic program on Thursday night that we are all invited to attend. I will have to see if I can get out of work early, as it's a 2-hour ride to camp, but it will be worth it. So, for a few days, our house will be a bit quieter and low maintenance. Too bad I have to work like crazy so I can leave on vacation Saturday with a clear conscience!! Oh well. Gotta love esy programs!!
