Last night was Family Night at Adam's Day Camp. He went last year as well. I think its great for him to get out and learn some new social skills and build self-confidence. He tends to be a home body.
He's still on the mend from his surgery a few weeks ago. While he's eating well now, he still tires easily and has sores in his throat still (still at risk for bleeding until they're totally healed). The counselors have been quick to assure me that they let him sit down and rest when he's looking "droopy." They also have a rest time in the afternoon which has been beneficial to him.
We got to eat dinner with Adam at the camp. After that, he showed us around the camp and gave us the highlights of his time there (he even tried archery!). It was fun to see him so excited about things- he was a motormouth the whole night which isn't like him at all (and a far cry from the weepy child I drop off every morning at the bus stop).
This year, the Family night was in the Main Camp. We got to eat dinner with Adam in the large lunch room. They served your basic grilling staples. Adam ate "crabby patties" (code for hamburgers). We even ran into some potential customers for D&J- all in all, a good night.

A little fun. Dave is such a good sport about this stuff. :)
