Well, another first has been added to our list of experiences--camping with ten kids. We took five of the six Truitt kids with us for an overnight trip to Sam A. Baker State Park. We had a blast! Other than discovering we had only brought three tent poles for two tents, it went off pretty well. I guess next time I'll have to double check the kid's packing endeavors. Thank goodness for the camper!
On Saturday, Dave took the boys and Lauren on a three hour canoe trip. Emily, Andrea, and I played in the water for a while and then we just relaxed at the campsite. It's amazing how easily kids are entertained in the great outdoors!
Troy and Jenn were able to spend some time away to celebrate their anniversary and we were able to grow in patience, gentleness, parenting skills, tent building skills, and the list goes on.......
Aren't Troy and Jenn just the greatest friends a person could have??? BIG SMILE!!!!! Actually, it was a privilege. We love their kids just like our own!
