Visiting Day

Discussion in 'People' started by Mitchell, Jul 24, 2008.

  1. Finally had visiting day at my daughter's camp. She's been away for over 3 weeks now and is sorely missed.

    Reunion joy!

    Samantha was thrilled to see her big sister.

    The camp photographer took this with my camera. She shoots a D200. I had a hard time getting my D2x with the 85mm, f1.4 back from her!:wink:

    Very nice series Mitchell. The one of your two girls is really super.

    Must be hard having her gone for so long. I don't know if I could handle 3 weeks without my little girl....:frown:
     
  9. Fred, she goes to camp for 7 weeks!:eek: Visiting day is the mid-point of the camp. It is tough having her gone for 7 weeks. We miss her terribly, but she is having an awesome time. This is her third summer there.

    I'm sure it's hard, but no doubt very good for her on many levels.

    I just don't think I could handle my kids being away for that long. Of course, you still have Samantha at home...what age will she start going?

    My favorite shot is the one of Stephanie and Samantha together. You can just tell they have a special bond.

    As always, it's a joy to see your family photos.

    I am in agreement...great shots, but I too don't think that I could stand to be away from my kids for that long. I am sure that the benefits outweigh the burden, but it would be a big adjustment (as I am sure it is for you). Your family shots always look so great. You have such a happy looking family.

    Great shots Mitch and what a wonderful family you have. When my kids used to go to the Citadel for summer camp when they were younger, they would write maybe two sentences on a post card that they must have been forced to write. That 3rd week is a toughy for parents. My wife and I were able to maintain our control. One parent actually ran up to her son and kissed him as his platoon was marching across the parade grounds. All the parents understood I'm sure but that boy must have been so embarrassed.
