That's basically how camping went. It was insane, and it was 24-7 for three days straight, but it was SO FUN. My fellow teachers are the fantasy team of public education, and hey, the cabin we stayed in was basically bigger than my home, so what's not to love? The fifth graders had fun hiking, playing in the snow and making sculptures out of vegetables. The site was gorgeous too - tucked into the side of a mountain with snowy clearings and a frozen river running through the bottom.

The hardest part was leaving my family for three days. I know this makes us spoiled as a couple, but it was the first night(s) Sam and I had spent apart since we got married. (There have been many nights in which our sleep schedules were completely opposite, but we hypothetically shared a bed at some point each night, and that's comforting.) After a year and a half together, a small sleeping bag by myself felt a little sub par. But boy was I happy to see Sam and Jason when I came home :)
So that was my week.
And now I'm back.
And ready to put up my mini blog redesign if I ever have half a second!
But it's been on my to-do list for three weeks now, so...
