It is spring break for the elementary kids. Yesterday Abigail was asking me what we're going to do for spring break, because we have to do something cause "everyone else" in their class is going to Florida or Europe or something amazing like that. So sad for us, we never do anything. How about camping? Well, I really don't have it in me to take all you kids to a warmer place in southern Utah to camp, sorry. I can't do that solo - and it would be if we tried cause Dad still had work and all the older kids have school. And camp sites up the canyon are still closed, cause it's still freaking cold at night. Abi is so funny, one day last month when the sun was out and most of the snow was gone, she asks if she can get on her swimsuit and turn on the sprinkler. Sorry Abi, it's still too cold. Silly girl. And so what can we do for fun? How about we can set up the tent in the back yard? Ok, that is okay, yes you may.
Abi worked really hard and did a pretty good job getting it started on her own. (she recruited neighbor kids to help) They want to go camping all week though. So to do that I told them we have to put the tent on the dirt so it doesn't kill the new spring grass that's trying to grow. I helped them finish the job and they moved in. They've been able to play camping during the day.
