I have been planning on blogging about camp since we rolled back home on Sunday night. JD was leaving the next morning for San Diego, so we needed to turn around some laundry so he could repack. Then Tuesday was our final week at CC, which meant I had planning to do.
Of course, when the schedule is packed is when some child crisis happens. It didn't really happen on Sunday, it was just discovered on Sunday. To put it bluntly, we are at about the 18 month mark with crisis after crisis due to incredibly poor choices our one teen son chooses to make; then many of the times, the other teen son isn't wise enough to not follow suit. I'm tempted to just tell you the whole story, as it really is quite entertaining if you don't live with the sneaky dishonesty on a daily basis, but I'm hard pressed to find much humor in any of it anymore. Let's just say that the end result is that both boys have a nice hole in their RIGHT ear since they had never heard the connotation about jewelry and gender identity, and unfortunately, their 50% odds didn't fall in their favor.
My conclusion is that I really need a wardrobe of t-shirts to wear that say "Remember, I really am not as stupid as you think I am;" and then when I hear a story that may be as ludicrous as a bug bit me in the front of the ear, and then flew around and bit the back of my ear.....oh, and the same happened to my brother, I can just point to the shirt (and turn red, but not say something along the lines of "that is the stupidest lie I have heard to date - congratulations, you have really outdone yourself"). Hypothetically speaking, of course.
Anyway, we really did have a lovely weekend at camp; even the laundry wasn't too bad.
Moriah came this year. While this is a lovely picture of her and her father -
here's the real reason she came, Chris was invited too. We like Chris and he enjoyed the camping things much more than Moriah. See her being super supportive of his fishing?
We enjoy the lake time.
The kids also enjoyed the games and sports, especially rock climbing.
And we are blessed with a taste of African culture during African drumming and dancing.
So, here's where JD is - San Diego with all of our favorite baby boy. The cool thing is Nathan was thrilled to see him since he Face times us regularly since leaving in January. I can't wait to see the little buddy live!
