Stephen left this morning for the Vineyard.
He's going to work over there for the month of August.
He'll live with my mom
and work at my sisters ice cream shop.
My mom also got him a job working as a camp counselor
at the Winnetu .
He is going to be one busy kid.
We drove him to the ferry this morning.
I cried watching him go.
Honestly, I couldn't ask for a better way for him to go off on his own for the first time.
And learn how to become an adult.
He'll be living and working with people who love him.
And will take great care of him.
I know that a BIG part of me
would love to just have him be that little boy
in his mom's arms.
It's so bittersweet!
I know that this is will be a wonderful experience for Stephen.
How lucky is he to be spending a month on Martha's Vineyard??
We miss you already buddy.
Thanks Mom and Jen
for taking him in.
