Did you notice that it’s been quiet around here this past week? We shut down our computer and went camping – with my entire family (minus one brother-in-law who couldn’t make it). Seventeen adults, and seventeen grandkids aged ten and under! It was so fun to see the cousins bond, and my kids LOVED having so many aunts and uncles to play with as well!
We had 10×10 foot cabins to sleep in, and a huge lodge to hang out in, and showers with hot water. So it was quite glamorous camping, really. A week of being unplugged – such a gift!
My family spans the globe (literally), and we hadn’t all gotten together like this since 2008. It was wonderful to catch up with everyone! I especially enjoyed seeing the magical cousin bond that I remember from my own childhood – instant friendships, even where this was the first time they met!
Plenty of time to play with grandparents, too! Now, if only we lived closer to each other – or if someone would invent teleportation.
We also put our house on the market, in hopes that it would sell while we were gone. Four offers within 36 hours of being open to the public, but two of those four fell through. Here’s hoping the third time’s the charm!
How was your week?
