AAAAAND HE's BACK!!!


with his trademark grin and his 'won't show it but i did miss you" style!


hoarse, tired and happy!


with memories stored in his little camera and scandalous tidbits shared !


with glowing reviews of his helpful nature by the teachers!

with tales of campfires, jungle treks, and kayaking!


to much relieved parents!


and so life continues, with him still hungover by the experience and with us basking in the familiarity of the chaos which make our routine...

and my vocal cords are finally getting the much needed exercise to keep them in perfect working order!

thank you, for all the virtual hugs and pats sent my way...it didn't lessen the hours but it did elevate my mood :D

Sumaaa ..was so wtng for this post and the first line itself made me jump with joy :) Congratulations to mom and sson on the camping trip being a huge success!!

'Won't show it but I did miss you' - some things never change with these boys, right?!

hey thanks neera..he had loads of fun...and grew up in many ways...i'm glad that we could give him this experience...my first overnite trip was in college :(

and yes...things don't change as far as demonstration goes...there was a marked diff between the way the girls greeted their parents and the way these boys greeted us..:D

Glad that he had a wonderful camping trip. And it is lovely that he's planning to write a journal about it.

Fingers crossed here - the camp is sometime in November :)

He is proving too soon n too well) that he is b'coming a grown up..haan ? :)

So r u too pretending as if u din't miss him much and as if u were happy that ur vocal chords n all of ur body n mind got the much-needed rest?? Or r u pampering him silly? :)

gauri...

we suggested that he do one because its so easy to forget details..and he likes writing...perhaps some day it would be a nice reminder of his first trip...

and yes...i do remember..come to me when you want to let out a few of those butterflies ;)

where is she going? and how long?

Great to know Big S is back. I am sure he would have enjoyed every moment of it and you grew more mature :) (okay okay.. i am stopping now) Waiting to see if his journal gets posted. I like that boy. He liked to read and write. Completely takes after his mom!:)

Suma said...

joy...

he loves reading but writing is a totally diff story...he's typed two pages and is on the lookout for someone who would type the rest out while he dictates..lazy bones!!!

and in that, i assure you, he does not take after me...koff...kofff...:D
