Off to bed the earliest ever in my 31 trips with a big smile. Until tomorrow- chow.

    I am glad to hear he was better on Wednesday! It is great that the camp was only in the am. I thought it was all day. Even a half day in that heat being active is hard on anyone. When my younger son was in HS he was in marching band. They would practice from 9-12 in the am on the field-lots of water breaks, he'd come home and go to sleep before going back in the evening for a few hours of more practice. All the kids were totally drained by the end of the week.

    It is great that the two of you get this special father and son time together.

    We are going well, thanks! I never do a good job writing on the last 2 days as I try and use up every second we have left. Yesterday was a typical Aruba day. We did not go to camp on the last day as I wanted to make sure CJ felt great for todays journey home. Sadly he did not get his certificate yet but I am pretty sure the owner will put it aside for us...he is a friend so I am not to worried about getting it. Last night CJ went to movie night and I just relaxed and had a couple of drinks while he was playing with friends- another day of no real gambling.

    The end of this trip is something I won't ever forget. I don't know if it will happen again any time soon but hanging on the island with my son 24 hours a day was something I know I will treasure forever. We are relaxing in the room after breakfast over at the Ritz. I figured getting a good meal into our bodies before a long day of travel was a good idea...my son does not enjoy any of the food options at the airport so its hit or miss with food options there.

    We are going to relax for another 45 min or so and our ride will be here. Its been fun....trip 31 is almost officially over.

    Safe travels! I’m with CJ, I don’t like the food options at the airport either.
