Not the Outdoorsy Kind of Guy

This weekend we decided to go camping (in our back yard). Last year (or year before), we bought a tent on clearance at Wally World. It was a 3 room tent that was marked down to practically nothing. Which just so happens that is all we have.
The kids and I are going to Missouri with my mother this next week so it really didn't make sense to take 2 trips so close together. So, we decided on the back yard camping adventure.
Luke loved the tent. He crawled from one room to the other, laughing, and having a great time. We roasted marshmallows and hot dogs. Lots of fun.
All was well and good until bedtime. All of a sudden the fun was over. He cried and fussed incessantly. This went on for what seemed like hours! Finally, John folded and took him in the house. He leaped out of John's arms and into his bed, rolled over, and went to sleep.
John says he slept all night. I, however, would not know because I was outside in the tent with Moriah, "Queen of the Back Yard Camping."
On a brighter note, maybe he won't complain anymore about sleeping in his bed!

Writer's Block

Wow! It's been over a month since I blogged. We've been busy winding school down and nothing has really happened that is worthy of a blog.
Luke is still biting. He has two more teeth so it hurts even more. He hit the back of Moriah's computer and broke it. We may have lost most of our digitial pix. Luke has discovered the joys of splashing in the toilet. I will blog pix of that later.
Moriah is ready for school to be out. Luke pesters the poop out of her. She is still camping out in the living room. She will not go back to her room. I think she has pediatric post traumatic stress disorder.
Laura and Karen came and visited last weekend. We had a good visit. We all walked (except for Luke, he strolled) to the park and went to a SONICFLOOD concert. THat was fun! Especially because it was free.
Moriah, Luke, and I will go next week to Carthage, MO with Nanna to the Precious Moments Chapel.
