Overnight Date

Connor and some neighbor friends enjoy lunch at the pool.

Papa escorts Collin on a horse during the National Night Out celebration in Homecroft, Indiana.

Cooper gets his turn too.

Collin devours an ice cream treat with Memaw.

At the conclusion of the evening, the kids faced the police officers. The kids were armed with water balloons and the police officers fought back with silly string. Hard to tell who came out ahead?

Tonight, Collin is sleeping over at Memaw and Papa's house for the very first time. He's my baby, and I really can't believe he's ready for such a momentous (in my mind) event.

I handed Memaw his overnight bag and transferred his car seat into her car. Then, I said my goodbyes. I waiting for his reply, fully expecting him to plead, "Don't leave me" or "Take me with you" or "Mommy, I can't live without you."

Instead, he clutched Memaw's hand and didn't look back. It seemed like he jumped about four steps into official big boy status. When did this happen?

Of course, I'm happy that he seemed so excited about his overnight date, but secretly hoping he'll miss me just a bit.
