Deep Portage.

There are a lot of things I know a lot about- and a lot of things I sort of find out about as they happen. One of the things I didn't know about ahead of signing Davis up for the Continued Progress program at his school two years ago, was that as part of this program, his CP Family will go on a camping trip every year in May. Great surprise, but one that required planning, as neither Bennett nor I felt confident that Davis would be successful if one of us didn't go with him. So, sweet Bennett decided to move his work trip to Detroit and go on this three day, within the work week, camping trip with Davis to Deep Portage. How nice is that? 

The best part is that you could just tell how thrilled little Davis was upon hearing the news that his dad was going. There is no one he loves or admires more- and it made him so happy and even so thankful to hear his dad was going to go along. Melt my heart.

So they left yesterday morning...

And I've gotten a lot of pictures since they've been gone...

Doesn't he just look so tiny here? He does to me...

Davis is having the time of his life. Bennett told me he scored the game-winning point in volleyball last night and that everyone was cheering for him...and he said it was his favorite day ever.

And let me just say- that it's been pretty nice to have the house to ourselves, just me and Holden. It's unreal to wake up to silence vs. someone literally jumping on you, or sticking his finger in your ear, or shouting at you from the backyard...

So we're all enjoying ourselves. :-) I miss them- but they will be back tomorrow.
