Ahhhh Camping

We went camping this weekend, it was our first camping trip with our son's Cub Scout group.  He had a ton of fun, the people are really nice, they planned lots of games and activities all with a space theme.  Some nice people came with big fancy telescopes so we could see the moon up close plus some binary stars and a cluster, it was pretty cool.

Really I'm not a big fan of camping.  I don't like coming home covered with mosquito bites, sleep deprived, the packing, unpacking and extra laundry. It was all for the little one, being home schooled we need too find other ways to get him some social interaction (the idea that home schooled kids end up socially stunted is a fallacy, but that's another blog post.) and as I said he had a blast!

It's not without it's good points too though, I do love a good campfire, hot cocoa, s'mores, nature (minus the mosquitoes) and watching the fog roll off the lake in the morning with the sunrise.

How was your weekend?
