My husband Dwayne was planning a camping trip with some male friends from church, but the friends had a family emergency, so our family decided to use the site for an impromptu camping trip instead.
The girls stayed in their own tent for the first time ever. Shown below is their attempt to put it together without our help. The eight person tent we bought when the oldest was a baby was too cramped the last time we all slept inside it, so it was time they graduated to their own tent.
The temperature was up into the nineties, so we enjoyed splashing in the very chilly brook.
This is one of my summer reading goals to improve as an educator over this break.
Our old Ford pick-up truck came in handy for carrying supplies and wood. The family enjoys it so much. It's a charming classic.
