Me: Oh my gosh, you start teaching Monday, don't you? We never took the boys camping this summer!
Matt: Oh shoot. Saturday?
So, yes. Planning is not really our strong suit, but we are great at flying by the seat of our pants! We had a jam-packed day on Saturday, as we had already planned to go to a local wildlife park with Matt's parents, but we rallied. We quickly packed our camping gear into the car, grabbed some grilling food and s'more ingredients, and off we went.
This was the first year they were allowed to 'help' with the fire. I'll be the first to say that Matt is much better at letting them take risks and learn things like this than I am, and in no time at all he had them scurrying around the campsite gathering kindling and blowing on the flames.
All in all - a fabulous impromptu camping trip! I'm so grateful to live in this place, with these people.
