It's All Good

So after a few days of doing the camp during the day and sleeping at night with the family, Emily is actually enjoying it. Of course, she won't admit it, but she is. When we dropped her off today, she just scurried off to her friends and didn't even bother to say goodbye!

Today they are going to Petra - an amazing ancient city carved out of the red sandstone of the desert. It's even mentioned in the Bible! It's a great opportunity to see something really fantastic. We had planned on taking them once Hubby arrived, but it's honestly too dang hot for us old people and if they are going with the camp - whoo hoo!!

Daniel and his cousin (who's the same age) are like two peas in a pod and are inseparable. It's so cute watching them together. We all had similar ideas and got them matching outfits, so it looks like they are twins most of the time.

As for me, I'm enjoying my time with Hubby's family. I've heard all the dirt - who's too lenient, who's too strict, whose kids are doing well or not, and what everybody thinks of everyone else. It seems I've become a sounding board for everyone's!

Yesterday I had to opportunity to meet my brother-in-law's future bride. She's a lovely girl who bonded instantly with my kids. Hopefully all will go well and there will be a wedding in the next few weeks. They are both difficult to pin down!

Thanks for all the encouragement with my struggles with Em earlier in the week. Sometimes I think we are both too stubborn for our own good!!

I am so glad she's having a good time at camp. They usually do, after being upset about having to go. It's sounds like you're having a wonderful time so far too!
