Remembering When - Camp Lakey Gap July 2011

Griffin is dancing and singing having a great time in this video as he did at camp that year but he did not want to go to camp this past summer telling me that he was afraid. His inhibitions have been stifled since then for some reason and he has separation anxiety to the point of not even wanting to sleep in his own bed so he still creeps into my room at night and I don't wake up. We talk about his fears but he doesn't seem to know how to express what it is that is bothering him exactly. He has blamed it on the TV in his room but I have removed it and it didn't help he just doesn't seem to have the ability to express himself. We are going to find out what it is so that we can have this old Griffin back that is in the video, the one that dances around and goes to camp without being afraid.

I had my knee surgery and an adverse reaction to the anesthesia, nausea, vomiting, and severe fatigue but it only lasted about 2 days and now I am better especially now that I can take a shower. Thank goodness for the help of my mom because Griffin had a day off of school, I could hardly stay awake and I was so sick and he was in such an ill mood too. It was a blessing that she was able to get him out of the apartment for a little while too.

I hope that you watched the awesome video of Griffin dancing, you will fall in love with him if you haven't already.
