Three Weeks from Today…

Caleb will leave for his first overnight camp experience.  I’ll admit, I’m already a nervous ninny, and he hasn’t even left.  He’s going to Camp Twitch and Shout, which is a camp just for children with Tourette’s Sydnrome.  While I know that he’ll be in good hands, I can’t help but worry how he’ll do.  It’s my prayer that he has a blast and makes friends with lots of children who are just like him.  When we first mentioned the camp to him, he was super excited.  His response was based on the fact that he’ll be around others who know exactly what it feels like to have Tourette’s.  They won’t make fun of him or tease him because of his tics…they’ll be totally accepting and loving. 
Caleb has some really great friends here, but it’ll be such a wonderful experience for him to meet others who know what it’s like to have tics.  That is something that Brian and I can’t share with him…we don’t know what it’s like.  So, it’s hard for us to sometimes understand…with God’s help, we try and do our best.  However, I’m so thankful that Caleb will have the opportunity to be surrounded by children who are just like him. 
Please keep us in your prayers as we prepare for this week of fun, which is July 29-August 3rd…like I said, I’m going to be a nervous ninny.  This will be his first time away from home for that long.  Granted, it’s up near Atlanta, so it’s not too far away, but still…

What are you nervous about? He will have everything he needs for being away--you will see to that. And if he forgets something--there are adults there to see that he has what he needs.

As for being away at camp--it will be the BEST experience of his life. Especially when he is going to be with kids who are just like him! My kids have always loved going to camp--making friends and getting away from mom and dad.

I wish him a GREAT time!! And I wish you peace. ;) He will be fine--and so will you.

He will have a wonderful time! What a great opportunity for him to be able to 'hang out' with other kids who know what it is like to have Tourettes.

Have a blast, Caleb!
