We did our annual camping trip to Devil's Lake this week. It happen to fall during the boys birthday (the 22nd) so instead of hiking we went to Mount Olympus Amusement and Water Park in the Dells. The boys were appropriately surprised and happy. We didn't get a hike in but the water park walking wore us out anyway. It was a great trip!

My and my other leader for our girl scout troop are doing a Not So Bummer Summer challenge with our kids that basically encourages them to do new things, get exercise, explore, etc over the summer. I also planned hiking every month with the scouts. Even though Gretchen grumbles about it, she's happy once all the kids get there!

Well year 8 was not easy..... it felt like she's 8 going on 18 all year long.... but luckily we had several moments where she behaved like an 8 year old which made me happy. No need to grow up too fast in my opinion.... the world isn't going anywhere that you can't go when it's time! Sigh.... We love her to pieces and can't believe she's grown so fast right before our eyes!
