Simon has his first bona fide friend! She is a fellow camper at the YMCA camp where he has been for the last 4 weeks. This is his first friend and she is actually his age! Annnnnd, twice his size. Seriously. They are like the polar ends of the size chart cruising around.
They are like puppies together- walking around holding hands, playing, wrestling, whacking each other and giggling and sometimes in a puppy pile snoozing like this:
It's been so so sweet. Tragically, Simon starts another camp next week. We debated canceling the 2nd camp so they could stay together but he wanted to go to the other camp. I'm nervous to see if he really understood that it meant he was giving up his friend. Methinks he doesn't really get it.
We've sent a letter to her mother via a counselor with our contact info and have our fingers crossed we will hear from her.
