We are taking the littles camping this week and I am soooo looking forward to it.
Now, part of that is simply because I work for a living and I am looking forward to not working for an entire week. That in itself is glorious. If only that happened and nothing else- no camping, no day trips, no nothing, that would be enough. Just the idea of not having to get up and be somewhere, to lose myself in the daydream that this someday could be my life, it fills me with hope and rejuvenates my soul.

We haven't been camping as much as a family since Sawyer was born. And this time, we are doing it a bit different. We are actually borrowing a trailer from a family member and using that, instead of roughing it and tent camping.
While I think it is going to be great, I am a little disappointed.
I like wilderness camping. When I was pregnant with Sebastian, I would daydream about taking my son or daughter wilderness camping with me. I thought that if I did it from the time they were little, they would grow with the appreciation of nature and learn the skills they needed naturally and develop this everlasting reverence for the interaction we have with the earth. I had grand plans.

But for now, we will start here. A trailer with a microwave. Ipod hook up. Indoor kitchen with cupboards nicer than my own kitchen at home. We will see how it goes and then take it from there.
Anyway, enjoy your week, and I will touch base as soon as I can...
