This past weekend was a three-day weekend for our kids since Friday was a teacher-work-day. Our oldest boys had planned a campout in our backyard with our neighbor. They had been planning this little endeavor for several days and were so excited to carry out their plans! They pitched their own tent, made their own fire, planned and cooked all their meals (all over the fire), and had a blast....all on their own. We tried to pretend they weren't there so they could feel completely independent. They really had a fun time and feel quite grown-up.
