Boys Weekend

This past weekend when I was busy realizing what I considered at the time  of setting it six months ago – a far-fetched roller derby goal – to play in a WFTDA SC Regionals tournament (!!!), Marc took the boy camping. I got updates all weekend while away in Lincoln, Nebraska. Each text filled me with joy and a bit of sadness that I was missing such an awesome family-weekend.

They had such an amazing time and I really think they needed it. At one point during the weekend, Marc reports that Harrison looked at his dad and said, “This is pretty good… you and me together. You’re a good dad.” Which is a million miles from where the two of them had been a month ago… Marc had been firmly planted in the role of disciplinarian and I the nurturer and fun-maker, giving me the unwanted honor of being the favorite parent. I am ecstatic that we seem to have moved away from the black and white roles now.

  1. That’s awesome. Way to go Marc! I’ve been telling Todd he needs to take Tyler on a big adventure like this…maybe he’ll be more motivated now knowing Marc was able to keep Harrison alive.

  2. Love the photos. Harrison looks so grown up. What a great trip for them both.

  3. So gald you are back on line with this site. It has been since February that I last saw H and I really notice the changes. He’s really quite the camper, big boy. Just think, in a few short months he will be in K. Oh so fast time goes. Love Aunty Margaret

  4. That’s awesome — Marc — where did the Geocaching come from? Did you set that up or is that part of the campground? That’s awesome. :)

  5. love!

  6. When the two of them came back from just 2 days of camping the difference in their relationship was astounding! I was blown away! So awesome!

    Hi all! yeah – I’m trying to be much better. :) thanks for reading.

  7. @chow the campground had a GeoCaching rack card that piqued my interest and my gps has the functionality, so we gave it a try.
