So we listen to Phil's plea to be able to go. Everything is paid for, coach bus, one meal a day, and to be able to play at this level of ball would be amazing. Joel says what an opportunity for you. I ask when ? He tells us the bus leaves Friday at 7:00 a.m. Ummmm I think we are suppose to leave on vacation that morning also. Please, please, please.... I call the coach get some details. The other boys got $6,ooo in three days from area businesses to sponsor them. He just needs money for one meal a day and anything else. I thought a bit and I guess this would be amazing for you. But, it also hurts my heart that you will not be with us. Then he told us he would be back Tues or Wed and could join us for a few days. And Phil reminded me about the great vacation we had in June too.
People tell me when your son gets older he starts to pull away. And I really don't like it !!!!! And because I love him so much I want him to be able to do this. I am also not going to be taking him to meet the bus. I feel I really could make a fool out of myself and him. The hugs and crying. I will do that at home.
So yes, vacation will be very different this year. We will be in upper WI and Phil will be in Kentucky. And guess what?? I will have no pictures of him playing on this team.
This is our 8th year at our vacation spot. And we really do love it. Guessing Joel and I will be making some new memories as a couple. Makes me see how the future will be someday too.
Just the two of us :) And we will wait for Phil to come and carry on a few of our traditions too.
This is Phil the 1st year we went in 2004.
