Hubby took Mr. Intensity (now 8.5 years old) on a boys' camping weekend. They first spent a day just the two of them hiking and camping in the Red River Gorge in eastern Kentucky. Hubby wanted to talk seriously about the next phase of life, the traps John Isaac would encounter and how to handle them. My man put some serious planning time into this weekend. Maybe I can coerce him to write a blog post about it later, but one snippet I will share.
Meanwhile, the littles and I were keeping things calm at home. Checking in on our friends. On one of (her nine!) cell phones.
It's about the same age as Schaeffer, now. I cannot believe how much they look alike. Below Schaeffer is wearing an outfit that the other two have worn. He is smiling because HE SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT! Yes, it only took him FOUR MONTHS but the kid is sleeping more than 4 hour stretches at night.
I probably don't have to tell you the boys (young and old) had a blast.
Brother re-discovered a book at my parents' house, brought it back to ours and read it to Sister. Very sweet times. (Until they start bickering tomorrow.)
So that was our week/weekend. How was yours?
