Camp Sweeney - July 21, 2017 - Pick Up Day

I don't even think y'all are ready for these pictures. I wasn't even close to being ready for the emotion of it all. Nate was a wreck when we got there. I couldn't even hold him up he was crying so hard. Oh. My. Word. All of the feels in the world!
It was so hard for him to say goodbye to Camp Sweeney and all of the beloved friends that he made there. There are no age or gender barriers --- it's truly like one huge family. Some of the best fiends he made were boys that were several years older. 
His big brother, Austin is amazing!! Nate had such a hard time leaving him. I'm so, so, so thankful for Austin and all of the counselors and Med Staff in Brown cabin. What a wonderful group of people! 
Nate said his goodbyes and was excited to stop for some Cane's chicken and love on Tink!!! ❤️🐶
We picked him up around 10a and he still hasn't stopped talking about camp. He also hasn't asked for any of his electronic devices! What? Weird. 
He's now happily playing with his bestie, Jacob who decided he is definitely going to camp with Nate next year as a nonnie (non-T1 person). 
I'm so happy to have him home but I'm also a bit sad that he's so heartbroken. The bond they have is more than I can describe and although I've always known he would go to Sweeney at some point, I now know w all of my heart it's the best thing I've ever done for him. #CampSweeney #PFC
