Girls Rock

For a sweet girl in my daughter's 2nd grade class, whose birthday we missed while we were camping this summer.  We thought for awhile what to stamp... her name?  BFF?  friends forever?  We eventually  came up with this.  It is photographed with a souvenir from the river my youngest played in.  He carried this in his pocket (for who knows how long!) and he finally took it out when we came home.  It was sitting here by the computer when I went to photograph this pendant/charm, so I grabbed it!  My oldest is going to put together some beads and make her friend a bracelet.  We are going to dangle this on it.  A very sweet idea (she may need to go into business with me sooner rather than later) from one girl to another!

Two whole weeks!!!

of the great outdoors!
(don't let the fancy sign fool you... it didn't flush (hold breath here) and at night I was afraid to venture in there!  Truth be told, I was afraid to venture in there during the day!  I made baby girl stand guard outside so I could leave the door open a crack!  Pathetic, but I did it for her too!  :))
 They spent A LOT of time doing this!  So AWESOME!!!

Home away from home!
 That's how we got water everyday!
In the end, I had a wonderful time.  It was rewarding to travel so far (Oregon) and experience life in the great outdoors.  The children had a great time.  They played, played, and played.  They ran around freely and had no worries.  They caught bugs, caterpillars, frogs, polliwogs... you name it, they caught it!  (Poor "baby" girl caught lots of mosquito bites!)  Although it was an amazing experience, I am glad to be home... nice warm shower, flushing toilets, no more mosquitoes buzzing in my ears, oops, I'd better stop, sounds like I'm complaining.  I'm not!  (well, maybe just a little!)
