The last year before the teenage years.
Owen's requests were simple and local.  
Donuts in the morning from Leucadia Donuts.  

And dinner at Fish 101

Hats from both.  

Cards from Tess and Finn.  Tess's a picture of Owen surfing in Fiji.   Finn's a picture of Owen surfing with a birthday cake with twelve candles.

Owen's first overnight camp

Owen spent his first week away from us at an overnight camp that the 6th graders went to.   A full week of not taking to him.  It was probably tougher on mom and dad than O.   A glimpse of college.  Yikes.    We sent letters to him. Here was a note from Tess.

Here was the note from Mom and Dad....


WOW!  6th grade camp!!   What an exciting and cool adventure….we are SO excited for you!!!
This is your first time away from home for a few days… and while you will be with teachers and friends,  we’re sure your probably a bit nervous as well. It’s okay to feel a bit uncomfortable or weird, but as soon as you get settled, you will be fine and have tons of fun!   You are such a good kid…you are nice, kind, cool, and fun!  You are always positive and easy going.  We know you are going to make many new friends at camp this week. 
This is what an adventure feels like… and this is your first adventure on your own!

You will take many adventures in your life.  Some short, some long.  Some nearby and some very far away.   But know that no matter the length of time you are gone or how far you travel in this world you are always close to us in our hearts and thoughts.  We are here for you always and forever!

Enjoy your first adventure.   We love you SO MUCH!!!

mom and dad.
