I'm sure they were exhausted by the time they arrived and set up camp at Fort AP Hill. It wasn't until Tuesday morning, though, when I first got a glimpse of him, courtesy of Brandon's dad who is onsite and knew I was hoping to hear/see something:
I know Ben is having so much fun -- there is so much for him to see and do during the 10 days he'll be on site at the camp. If you're interested, visit the Jamboree website or Jamboree Today on Facebook.
As you read this, Dennis and I are headed to Virginia ourselves to visit Ben at Jamboree. I just couldn't bear not to experience it a bit myself! We will see Ben, then spend the rest of the trip visiting antique stores, battlefields, and all the wonderful DC monuments; plus, a couple of Smithsonians, the Holocaust Museum, and Mt. Vernon.
I also get a chance to reunite with two women I spent a year in Germany with when I was 22. That will be a blast! It's been 23 years since I saw them (or DC) together.
I'll have limited Internet access, and if I get a chance I will be uploading photos and updates along the way!
