Did You Know?


Simon: She's going to be the hardest to leave and the hardest to hang on to because she's Ruthie and she's 13 and she's got a boyfriend. And while she understands that I want to leave the rest of the family, she doesn't understand how I can leave her but I don't think she'll hold it against me, she won't have the time to hold it against me.

The History of the Camden Family
12 March 2018 | by catnipper40See all my reviews

For all of the viewers who have watched this series repeatedly and those who are seeing it all for the first time, this episode is a review of the previous 7 seasons of this wonderful series.

Simon, as the description states, is headed for college which is the reason for this episode. If you have not seen the family from beginning to end and you want to jump into the show at this point, DON'T miss this particular episode; it is excellent.

I have always had a special place in my heart for "Simon Camden". He can make me laugh, cry, think and smile at everything he does. In the past couple of seasons he has really grown up and I've always felt like he was my son from the start. (Attention readers and cast: No I am not stalking him; I'm just a big fan.) I want to thank the cast, crew and their families for making this series possible. The children in front of the camera gave me the best of their growing up years for my entertainment and I will always be grateful.
