When we go camping… It’s always more work than we expected!
When we go camping… Our baby (now toddler) cocoons in his seat on the ride north, emerging in a flutter of arms and legs to run around the dirt campsite.
When we go camping… Our son’s favorite trail is to the water spigot, even the smallest camper pitching in, holding the handle of Daddy’s bucket
When we go camping… He learns to walk by navigating tree roots and trails, scampering like a squirrel along the ground
When we go camping… Our campsite abounds with babylegs, Bumbos, bug netting, bandanas, and bare feet
When we go camping… The best toys are tiny treasures we collect – sticks, leaves, rocks, bugs
When we go camping… The lake becomes our own zero entry pool, safe for small ones to enter slowly
When we go camping… We spy owls, chipmunks, squirrels, ducks, deer… we think we hear a moose calling in the dead of night
When we go camping… Loons wake us in the night with their haunting cries… in the morning, we feel brave enough to echo them
When we go camping… Flashlights bob on the walls of our tent, like fireflies waiting to be released from a jar
When we go camping… We huddle together on a floating mattress in a flashing darkness, while three thunderstorms pour over us
When we go camping… Rough earth, scratchy grass, coarse sand, silky water – new textures bring delight
When we go camping… We stay connected –to the twitter of birds, the faces of family, the sights of hawks and eagles circling the sky
When we go camping… Our son leaves with new vocabulary, new energy, new ideas for play
When we go camping… It’s always more worthwhile than we expected.
