Catching up

This past Saturday I took T-Rex to camp with the girl scouts.... except it rained....a LOT. After the girls finished cooking outdoors the skies opened up and the rain came down - HARD. So the girls put on their ponchos and ate in mud puddles standing under the awning of our tent. When they finished they wanted to sit in the tent to wait it out. As I stood in the doorway telling them to stay away from the walls of the tent, the back of the tent started to collapse under the force of the rain, and even though we kept dumping it off.... the weight of the rain on the roof. It broke a pole and we sent the girls to the cars and the other adults and I spent an hour in bare feet in the pouring rain gathering up a soggy camp. We spent the night at my coleaders house and tried to carry on with our plans, but lets face it - sleeping in a house is NOT sleeping outdoors, so it degenerated into a slumber party.

Meanwhile, Brian had to take the other three to Blondie's therapy picnic. Every six months or so, Kathy has a picnic out on the green in front of her therapy clinic. The kids had a great time, and the rain held off for them until the very end. The girls played with a parachute that we brought, as well as a kite, and ate a lot of food, and listened to good music.
