LLB and #1 are at summer camp.
#1 told me not to pack any writing supplies for him as he was not going to write a note, a letter, a word... In other words, "you won't hear from me because I'll be too busy having fun with my friends..."
LLB sent us a note - a two pager thankyouverymuch.
The two sentences that said it all are these:
"The food is turific!" (She still can't spell!)
"I'm having the best time of my life!!"
BTW: There is nothing in there about her brother, so I'm assuming he is fine.
