So much has gone on since I blogged last. Like I said .. seems like it all comes at once.
Kate and Jarad where here a couple of nights this week.. and it was so great to get to have them around. Kate and I were laughing about "How", ( or if)I would blog about "The Campers". I didn't think I would..but here I am. lol Oh.. why do I feel the need to share everything. lol
Long story short, when we first moved here ,someone out where we have our cabin was getting rid of a couple of old campers. Well, Jarad..being the fixer-up-er guy that he is... wanted them to put on our land out here. How he talked his dad into this, I'll never know. lol Our approximately 3 acers are outlined with trees... so the plan was for Jarad to have these out in the trees on the East side of the property, where there was already a cement slap from a old out building when this was old farm land , years ago. It really was a fun place for a 15 year old kid to have his guy friends out to , to hang out after school or on weekends. He cleaned up the area, Dan and he built a fire pit, a privacy fence around it, a path out to it out of woodchips, and lots of other "guy projects". I think they had alot of fun working on it together. As Jarad got older, in highschool, he even bought an above ground pool to put out there. I have to say, it was a great project for him at the time. But as we all know..... our babes leave home eventually.. their lives get busy with their own things. I thought ... "oh man...these campers are going to be left out there, until they rot". Ahhhhhh.... it was driving me crazy! We'll believe it or not.. this week Jarad had both of them hauled out and they are GONE!!! I am a happy momma!
Like I said , Kate and I laughed... she wondered if I would put a picture of the old camper on my blog. Um..... no thanks. lol But Jarad found this (below) out in the camper. He said he'd had it in there since he first got the camper.. and wanted me to put it in his keepsake box for him. lol
If nothing else.. my kids have gotten the "preserve the memories" thing from me huh? hahah
Below is a picture I took of a photo Jarad found in the camper,that he wanted to got to the keepsake box also. It's Jarad at 14 or so ,and Dan, when we first moved here and he
was setting up "camperville".
Oh..were do the years go?
see kate.. I WILL blog about just about anything. lol
On another note.. I was telling you earlier about packing kits. THEY ARE DONE! Woo hoo!
It was a big job. The classes in Gretna on Sat are have been done for some time..these are the classes for next week in MI. 12 classes. We're talking 360 kits, not all the same. Now you can see why I'm doing the happy dance because they're finished. YAY!
