Packing - The first part of Camping

The first (and hardest) part of a trip is the packing. Oh, the anxiety of it all!!! Will we forget something? Will we need something we forgot we needed? Will it rain? Will something break? Will Michael get stuck or cut and we have to go get stitches in the middle of packing?

You pack clothes, food, dishes, plates, soap, tents, beds, blankets, lamps, and other stuff.

Oh, have we forgotten something?

Ryan was a super packer and he was worn out. Although he was not as tired as he made it appear in this photo!

Rachel did above and beyond the call of duty. She packed and packed and packed and packed and then slept the whole way to TN.

Our family van - we call it the "Green Bean" - and the trailer. They both deserve special credit!!!'

More tomorrow! Jessica

A Strange Math Problem

(this is long overdue as their anniversary was on the first of September, but here we go!)

There is so much you can say about your parents. They are wonderful Godly examples and really sweet. Immeasurably sweet actually!

But I have to say, when Mommy and Daddy met at college 20+ years ago it was the beginning of a strange math problem. It is the only problem I know where 1 plus 1 equals 8!!!

We love you, Jessica

Pondering part 2

To whom goes the the credit for the quote on the previous post?

No GOOGLE usage


I must study politics and war that my sons may have the liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.

My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, navel architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture....

in order to give their children the right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.

The next generation will stand on your shoulders. They will either be straight or fall off.
