S. had his first camp out of the season last night, right in our own back yard. Just putting up the tent and playing around was a huge hit for both kids. We can’t really commit to camping out every night, so we made a compromise and set up the tent in S.’s bedroom this morning (it’s a small tent). So he can sort of camp out every night, if he’d like to.
