Camping is always a great experience. There’s this relaxing, laid back feeling with camping that is hard to feel anywhere else. It’s funny because we’re enjoying this comforting isolation, deep in the woods, separated from the rest of society, and yet- we’re only 15 minutes from our house!
As it is, I took the Little Professor to a Doctor appointment today, continued onto work for a few hours and was back at the campsite by 3:30 in the afternoon. Thankfully I work for a company that encourages working from home, and my manager is also very supportive of the process – so I have been able to spend part of my work week right here at the campsite, logged into work on my laptop.
As fun as it is, there is, of course, the occasional bug bite or scraped knee to deal with. Last night each of the older kids needed Mummy to fix some boo-boos.
Just look at these sad faces!
As you may, or may not, be able to tell – they are all faking! They were giggling and having fun with Mummy while they were getting bandaged – and Mummy decided to see if she could get a “sad face” picture of each to demonstrate the pain and suffering of their wounds. So, in order to get sad face pictures, she would tell each in turn a sad little story about a down on his luck chipmunk that ran into all sort of adversity. Hit by a car – with his Mommy chipmunk watching, but he lived… however the little chipmunk had amnesia now and couldn’t even recognize his Mommy chipmunk… So Sad.
But, minor injuries (and memory impaired chipmunks) aside, everyone is having a lot of fun and we just don’t want it to end.
