There were two and half miles of creek running along the cabin property so we spent a good part of the day Saturday just exploring and fishing. The boys camp and fish all the time, but E is almost never included she was super excited to be part of the action on this trip.
We cooked at the cabin each night and B built big fires. Maybe a little too big at times! We realized this weekend we may not be wood burning fire place people. :) The kids made smores and we played board games. B and M made futile attempts to beat me at the game Memory, but they were both dismally unsuccessful. Momma don't play around when it comes to Memory.
We had a really nice relaxing weekend. I know B would love to live somewhere like this one day. I don't think that will EVER happen, but sometimes I get romantic ideas in my head about it. Living where the dirt road ends. Me homeschooling the taters. Singing Kum Ba Yah at night by the fire. Then I pass the Sonic down the street from my house and realize I just HAVE to stop to get me a Happy Hour cherry vanilla coke (on the rocks, hold the diet). And in that moment it is very clear to me that I am not ready for the country life. Not having daily access to a Sonic or at least a Kum & Go with the fancy add your own flavors fountain is a deal breaker for me folks! Sad but true.
Talk to ya soon,
