I never thought we would be campers but here we are. I blame our good friends, who invited us early this summer to go camping with them. We bought a tent large enough to fit our family and the rest they say, is history. For the record, I don't think I've ever seen my three boys as happy as they are when we are camping. That could have something to do with all of the space that comes with camping and being able to hit a baseball without having to go around our fence and through the alley to retrieve it from the neighbor's yard. But to be perfectly honest, I'm happy too. There is something about the smell of a campfire and being outside, surrounded by trees, water, and God's creation. Despite the dirt and the occasional bathroom inconvenience, it is just plain fun.
We have one more camping trip planned before Fall sets in. We'll be camping with two other couples who also happen to teach at the same school as my husband.
Also, school starts next week already. No, I don't want to talk about it.
