read my blog

sorry for the lack of updates to all of you who sit in a cube all day and check out our blog. i started teaching [part time] and the kiddos don't start school until september 5th. so these past 3 weeks are kinda crazy at our house. pretty much everything has been put on hold - errands, editing, cooking, chores, etc. one week until a routine sets in...hooray!

but for anyone that does blog...check out blurb.com...you can turn your blog into a book. pretty cool. also... enter PARENTSMAG07 in the promotional code for 10% off

Thanks to our good friends, Ben and Henry Wise, I took a camping trip with my son. Jackson and I spent some male bonding time on a spontaneous camp out in Brazos Bend State Park. Ran to Academy, spent $220 on camping gear, and headed to Brazos Bend State Park. Beautiful Place.

We arrived around 7pm Wednesday, August 1, 2007. We rushed to put the tent up and just as I was putting the tent up, Jackson yelled, "Yook, Daddy, small animals." We were surrounded by 5 raccoons jumping in our car, picking up our food, and more approaching. Like an ambush. This went on every 30 mins until 5am. I did not sleep more than 2 hrs as they attacked our tent. Jackson slept fine.

Lots of funny "WHY?" questions by Jackson:

Why did God make people?
Why did God make rain?
Why did God make our car break down? ( we left the lights on a bit to long while illuminating our fire at night)
Why are we here?
Why did we come to sleep here?

Great to get away from the city and spend some time listening to his "why's"

Happy camping,
