The kids and I are in Starkville for spring break. We spent Sunday night in Shreveport with Aunt Nancy and arrived in Starkville yesterday. We built a campfire in the front yard and the kids wanted to camp out. The kids had so much fun gathering wood for the fire. When the sparks from the fire would fly, the kids would yell, “I see Tinkerbells!” They would shine their flashlight into the campfire smoke and pretend it was a light saber.
They wanted to camp outside, but with a pond in the front yard, that meant that Mommy had to camp outside. In the end, I convinced them to camp in the living room so they could watch Ice Age on the television before they went to sleep.
