We had a really great time camping, it was an awesome trip.....This picture shows me about ready to cry.... I was Shat upon!!!!!! If you look really close you can see that a nasty little bird decided to take a poop right on me. I was just walking along enjoying the nice morning and low and behold somethng like a big, fat, wet, warm, raindrop landed on my chest. I looked up to see if it was going to rain but there was not a single cloud in the sky... not one!!!! so naturally hand goes to wet spot to investigate. It was nasty, I didn't dare move for fear of spreading it. Justin and I were walking along taking photos of the kids. I couldn't believe it when Justin told me I had been dive bombed by a bird. The saddest part of it all was when he started laughing at me and raised the camera and got a shot of the MESS before I could turn and defend myself.
Did I mention that I had burned my hand really bad while making breakfast? so my right hand was all tied up in a wet cold rag and he had no sypathy for me. I really did want to cry right then and there. Lucky for me he was nice enough to take my cold wet rag away and clean up the mess.
The rest of the trip went very well we had a nice hike and I made Justin go up on a really high rock and play his guitar so I could get some photos. He was really a good sport about it. The lake was really low so we did not swim but we did catch a frog! Elyssa was ecstatic!!! My Buttermilk syrup was auctioned off for $9 a jar.....
We came home Sunday afternoon. On monday morning I decided I really needed to start homeschooling, we were 2 weeks behind!!! It all went well except that my internet connection was extremely slow as usual. I am happy to report after 2 days of homeschooling we are all still intact and no one has any lingering ill effects. Although it is clear that one of my children needs an attitude ADJUSTMENT. We are working on that.....
The best news of the week though has to be that we are getting rid of our slower than dirt dial up connection and we are getting high speed wireless internet. YEE HAWW!!!!!
I don't know if I am more excited or if Ashton is. He can now connect our Wii online to battle his Uncle John on Guitar Hero. As a trade off we are going to cancel our home phone and just use our cell phones for calling around.
I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!
