Remember back then…

I decided about two weeks ago, with dad working out of state this week, and big sis not planning on coming to visit, I would take little man on an overnight camping trip.  I hate bugs, I like comfort and indoor plumbing, etc.  but I love my kids more!

saturday, after troop popcorn sales, I popped the hatch to show him a trunk full with tent, firewood, cooler, and sleeping bags.  His smile was incredible!!!!  We jumped in the car and hit the road.  No trouble setting up, starting a fire, and cooking.  Our plan was to relax for the afternoon, eat, sit around fire til bedtime, sleep in, clean up, go hike, then head home.

we did almost all that.  I asked him if I had done well enough to try it again, I got a yes!  What a wonderful time!

IMG_3668.JPGStarting again to clip.  Trying to be smart. One paper.  Items we use or can try.  Not running to four stores to save a dollar.

I miss her!

IMG_3445Last weekend we spent time with family.  They had a send-off care package for her. We strolled the zoo a couple of hours together.  My dad shared his tidbits of wisdom with her.  They leave for the south this week.  Future unknown.

titanic.  Overwhelming.  Barely adrift.  Musicians making the most of their time together.  The fear, the acceptance, the hope!  She’s packing this week.  Frantically trying to visit each person before the car heads south.  Future…have to wait and see…
