The camping retreat went amazingly well. The kids all bonded and learned lots I think. During their *free time* we went to the rec center at the resort. Most of the girls swam, and the guys played pool or ping pong.
The girls I was in charge of behaved. That's a good thing, lol. No one tried to sneak out of their tents or anything. It might have had something to do with the fact that I set my tent up directly between my girls tent and the tent with all the boys;) They did ask me if they could go to the boy's tent because Joseph was telling jokes and they wanted to listen. Oops, sorry girls.....everyone inside their respective tents at 11:00.....and no fraternizing;)
The kids got up at 6:30 this morning and cooked breakfast for the adults at 8. Cold pancakes and overcooked eggs. Yummy!
Ok, there was one problem. I got stung. Friggin bee;/ It flew into the waistband of my jeans and stung my lower back. It raised a humongous welt. Josephine had some bee sting stuff to kill the pain, so it wasn't too bad. I'm just glad the bee didn't get any farther. It really would have sucked to get stung on the ass.
So, the kids were giggling in their tents til almost 2......I didn't get a lot of sleep......but the kids all had fun:)
Now.....Chris is off for a week (and he really gets to take the time off!) Guess what he wants to do?
I unpacked the car this afternoon and repacked it tonight. We're leaving in the morning for Southern Oregon for a couple of days, then back down 101 to Richardson's Grove:) We should be back Thursday or Friday.
Ya'll have a good week:D
