Everybody’s so sweet, inviting us to show up on your doorsteps. We need to invest in some sort of “beam me up, Scotty” contraption.
Now, would you like all your OTHER friends to show up on your doorstep on Christmas Day afternoon?
We’re off to Pathfinder Camporee this morning. For Lia’s sake, I will not vacuum or clean the girls room or wash the towels. She’s so anxious to go…and has been since she woke up around 6 this morning when Devo was bumping around getting ready to go. (She went back to sleep…eventually…in my bed.)
Lia is going to camp with Devo. Amelie and I are going to enjoy the good food and company. And I’m continuing to think about staying the night. But the thought of walking by myself through the cold and dark to the bathroom four or five times a night is not appealing. Not appealing. Not appealing.
But, on the other hand, we’re considering looking into camping as a viable family outing and this would be a trouble-free way to see if we actually like camping or if we just like how cheap camping is.
Tomorrow night is the Adventurer’s Trunk or Treat at the church. Every single event they have had this year has been at the same time as a previously scheduled youth event (that we planned to make a family event). I’m miffed…but at no one in particular. That’s just the downfall of running the youth ministry when your kids are in children’s ministry. With a commitment to letting family time trump all. So we’ll see if we’ve had enough of camping by tomorrow evening and come back for the Trunk or Treat.
