Before last weekend .. .
I went to buy the essential ingredients to make the boys weekend . . .
all that they hoped it would be.
Fresh salami. . .fresh pepperoni and fresh jerky.
I did the menno mom thing .. .made them fresh buns . . .
and some apple pie.
On Friday morning . .
we woke up early. .
got dressed and got back in the truck.
With a stop at Hope for some refueling at the Whitespot. . .
we arrived home in time for chores.
I gave him my old camera that sometimes works. . . .
and requested pictures for documentation purposes.
Later . . .near noon. . .we said our goodbyes. . .
and he hooked up yet another trailer. . .
while I finished packing my bag.
The boys joined him in the evening.
They claimed their spots to sleep. .
and enjoyed an evening around the fire.
We emailed back and forth. .
I phones and notebooks ..
comparing our weekends.
The boys version of fun. . .is "roughing it".
The text message they most often received. . .?
Be careful .. .don't break anything. . .have fun!
The camera I sent. . .took six pictures. . . three of them focused .. .sort of.
