Mother-Son Boy Scout Camping Trip

I've been looking forward to this trip for quite some time, and we couldn't have asked for better weather. Mom and I headed out early Saturday afternoon and made the trek North to our camp. We were joined by around 20 other boys and their moms. We were busy outside all day hiking, sledding, and having snow ball fights. The dinner hour brought with it lantern making, peeling carrots for dinner, and making brownies (which were delicious!). After dinner we headed back out for a campfire and then before bed we organized skits to share with the camp. In the morning we enjoyed a quick breakfast and then pitched in restocking wood and cleaning up the camp. I was the only second grader that ended up attending the camp, but all of the 3rd and 4th grade boys took me under their wings. It was a great time with great friends and I can't wait for the next camping trip in the Spring!
