It was a WONDERFUL campout!

We had a WONDERFUL week camping with friends. I can't ever remember a time where I felt so closely connected with a group of friends where we all helped each other, cared for each other, and enjoyed a week in the mountains together. It was truly wonderful!!!

We're going camping!!!

We're going camping this coming week and are very excited about it. My son recently returned from a week-long scout camp where he learned some 'wilderness survival' skills. We'll be putting some of them to use this week but probably not the eating of cattails --- though we might venture a taste-test. :)

Summer education is different than most of the rest of the year -- but, similar in the way that it's life-long learning. We'll be taking some adventure hikes, cooking round the fire, learning to use solar ovens, and spending time with other home-schooling families. We truly look forward to the adventure of sleeping in a tent under the stars! And... hopefully we'll outsmart the mosquitoes with our citronella candles.
