October 9, 2012

Wow, it's been quite chilly here yesterday and today! I do believe we'll be warming up here soon for at least a few days. I am not ready for this cool/cold weather!

Last week James was gone all week as he had a business trip in Ohio. We sure did miss him! He said that the trip was very beneficial and went well.

We picked him up at the airport and took straight off for a camping trip with our church congregation. It was the first church family camping trip and I think that everyone had a good time. Many years prior, only the men and boys went. We ladies are very thankful that they included us in on the fun! Maybe we'll be able to do this again soon.

The men (and some girls) fished a lot. Not a lot was caught but I believe they had fun. They men did most of the cooking. We ladies did minimal clean-up as there wasn't much to do. The biggest chore we had was keeping the young ones safe around the campfire. We had S'mores and that's always good! :D

Three of us moms took most of the children on a nature trail. Later another mom and I went again with some of the big children. We jogged and walked, jogged and walked. It was SO MUCH FUN! I think we got our workout that day. :D

The only complaints I have are the gazillion mosquito bites on my legs. A few of the others had them too. I did not use repellent but they did. So I suppose it didn't matter whether we did or didn't.

This week is full of much school, hospital visits to radiation, church and chores. This is a heavy school week. We get it in when we can! I take Mama to the hospital three days this week along with to the drug store and grocery store. We went to a revival to a sister church last night and of course we'll have our usual mid week services.... love them! We have extra laundry from the camping trip, if we can ever get to it. Washing and hanging isn't the problem...just the putting away. Besides, I am sooooo sleepy and just want to sleep when not doing other work. Blah! I need to be more faithful in the supplements.

Okay, so that's about it for this week thus far.

This sounds like lots of fun. Our church has a men's campout and a youth one but not a family one. I'm glad you had a good time. Enjoy your day and God bless.

Sounds like a GREAT time. We have talked about camping a few times now that our little guy isn't so little anymore, but we always chicken out b/c of the fire issue....Ha,ha,ha! Hope you get to accomplish all you set out to do this week!

Hi, Susan! I hope your week is going smoothly. We love camping. I really wanted to go again before it got too cold. I am hoping for some more warm days. I hope your mom's treatments are still going well. She is in my prayers.

Have a great Thursday.
