books, camping

We went camping this weekend and couldn't have asked for better weather.  Just when you started getting too hot, the clouds would come and a breeze and you'd cool off.  Just when you'd get too cool, the sun would pop out.  We all have sunburns from underestimating the UV index. Just like mom says, you can still get burned in cloudy weather!  The newsman said that last night was the record low for the year.  It was cold, but a sleeping bag and blanket was good enough.  Nothing like the 37 degrees we tried to camp out in!!  Went fishing, on a treasure hunt, made smores, made kites, all that good stuff.  My camera battery went dead today, so I can't even download pictures.  I'll buy a new battery tomorrow.  (Yes, I have regular batteries and rechargable.  The rechargable flaked out on me)

Tomorrow I go in for another fill.  That means I'll get to go to the other side of the island and go on a Walmart run!!  Yeah!

Have you heard of the 5 love languages?  Usually it's a book you read when you are about to get married.  By Gary Chapman, and I think Smalley.  I'm reading about discovering your child's love language.  I got this book years ago, and read it then.  But I've been rummaging around our books looking for things to read.  I figured this is a good time to read this since they are old enough to tell what their love language is.  The 5 languages are: physical touch, quality time, words of encouragement, gifts, acts of service.  Just off the cuff I'm guessing Ryan is quality time and Jake is physical touch.  But I'm going to read the whole book and take the time to really make a good effort at finding it out.

It's good to be home again.  I can't wait to be in my own comfy bed.
