Having just returned from camping trip number three, which has fortunately improved from camping trip number one - I can't help but reflect...
(que squiggly lines and far off music)
...on some of the reasons why I love camping...
1- We get to wear silly headbanz and play games together.
2- On rainy camp days, I have time to read!
3- My children create hideouts in the bunks and entertain themselves with no toys at all.
4- And maybe even work on a little school work together.
5- Sweet cuddle time.
6- My wonderful husband who works so hard to get everything set up for us...
and a campfire.
7- Secret agent super spies who appreciate my 007 sound effects.
8- Beautiful scenery and thankfully blue skies.
9- Laundromat trip conversations....
Me: Singing "you don't know a thing about me..." in a voice that would surely shame Kelly Clarkson...
Luke: I know a thing about you.
Me: What do you know?
Luke: I'm not telling.
Erin: I know a thing about you.
Me: What is that?
Erin: You are the best mom ever.
Sigh. Isn't that reason enough?
