this weekend steve had a retreat with the college group so the boys and i tagged along. we drove up to lake lopez (only about half an hour from our home) and felt like we were far away. it was great to…
-take a break from my computer
-build a fort with the boys
-read chicka chicka 123, thomas, and does a kangaroo have a mother?
-build block towers and demolish them
-give the boys long baths and then snuggle
-not cook (ha! because i usually cook such elaborate meals…)
-read mr. darcy’s diary (so fun! next is mr. knightly’s diary)
-go to bed at 10 and wake up at 7, nice!
-drink lots of camp coffee, with flavored cream
-get to know some new students and hang out with some very sweet girls
