All of the kids started out in the tent last night, most stayed there. No sooner did I reach our back door when the phone began to ring. Patches was sobbing , she was too scared to stay in the tent located 25 feet from our home directly under our very bright light. After speaking to me she was convinced to stay a bit longer but couldn't do it all night.
I am so proud of the rest that did. It was freezing outside and I was thankful I forced them into multiple layers and extra blankets. They basically ate a bunch of snacks and fell asleep. Everyone else came running back in at dawn to warm up. I can't wait to take them camping for real so I can tell them scary stories and freak them all out.
I am ready for them to return to school in the morning. I have enjoyed having them home but am anxious to get started on Patches schoolwork. She will begin learning about Ancient Egypt and The Universe. She received a cool telescope for Christmas that she has just earned back and we both really love that kind of stuff so we will be having fun.
