Camping is on for tonight, though it’s going to be a chilly night. Ethan and Ehlana are doing sleepovers with Aiden and Naomi respectively; so it’s just teens in the back yard; and the parents are currently away having some fun with their friends too as I’m writing this.
With a gang of teens here, I’ll need to skip my usual nightly computing, so this is mostly just a quick note; and I’ll do a double update tomorrow with the details of our camping adventure.
Our day so far has been mostly work and studying. I did chores with Dad this morning, and that was a bit messy since everything around here was fairly wet. We did the must-do chores; skipped the rest; and called it a day when we stopped for lunch. Michael, Rowen, Tim, and a few other classmates came over after lunch and we studied for most of the afternoon. Our farm-kid friends didn’t join us until later in the afternoon once they were finished with chores on their farms, and not all of them were able to study for exams with us at all; but they were all here in time to help with the camp set-up by the river before dinner.
That was a game-time call, and I can assure you that the drop in temperature forecast for tonight was a plus for that decision for at least some of us. Take a guess why; and then flip the digital page in your 'now' to find out if you were right! ;^)
Anyway, I’m just doing this quickly while taking a washroom break and grabbing my guitar before heading out again for the campfire that is just getting started. We’ve been having a lot of fun pretty much since we started setting up our camp, and that’s going to just keep getting better, but I really do have to get back to that now; so look for the details in the next report.
...May the Magi Force be with you!
