I found the loop hole.
How do you get your husband to keep his promise of going camping at least once this year?
You find the one weekend where school has ended, meaning:
No homework, no studying.
You find the one weekend where there are no softball tournaments, meaning:
You find the one weekend where he will want to be sure to get Saturday chores done, meaning:
You surprise him by mowing the lawns yourself.
You find the one weekend where you can clean everything and have everything packed & ready to go, meaning you will get to say:
"Yep we can do this babe I promise, I know how to camp."
"Thanks Mom & Dad for letting me borrow a bunch of stuff."
A freshly groomed lawn, a clean house & everything is packed, again means:
No way out.
I really wanted to go camping...
Spencer fished and I went on a walk in the forest.
Finding these incredibly beautiful creations made me think of my Father in Heaven.
I can't describe how I felt this camping trip, other than it just felt more than good to be there.
Spencer actually loved it and said, "Wow, this is nothing like Scout Camp."
I accomplished what I had set out to do, to show him how GREAT camping can be. =)
