The wonders of school camp

My twin boys headed off for school camp today.

They’re away for four nights.

The house is strangely peaceful

(almost eerily calm).

I can feel myself starting to relax and unfurl and release tension I didn’t even know I was holding.

I’ve been holding it so tight that it’s almost painful to release.

Four nights and five days isn’t very long.

 But a lot can still happen in that time.

I will be intrigued to see how we all change and grow over this almost-week.
