My baby and my only son left for Scout Camp this morning. Why is my stomach in knots? I know within reason they won't lose him...we've only lost 4 scouts in Utah over the last few years and only one never came back!!! That was in the high Uinta mts. and Richard will be up Payson Canyon east of Springville, only about 30 minutes away...sigh. He was a bit nervous and really wary last night. We assured him that all of us had been to camp and we were all nervous and a bit homesick the first day but that we all loved it after that and had a great time and we were sure he would too! Then I went to bed and prayed and worried for a long while. Why is this so hard? I've sent Four daughters away to camp, three away to college, and one away on a mission plus two semesters abroad in Europe!! Granted, Richard does have a few special needs but I believe Heavenly Father has been looking out for him for a long time. The two Scout Master are kind, fun, good men who love him and I belive they were placed in their callings for my son among others. One of them has a daughter with O.C.D. and one of them has it himself so they can completely understand his needs and help him. I just found that out yesterday and feel much better.
