Well my son went on his first camping trip this weekend and it was a success. The only thorn he told the troop in the big circle when they got home was that "his dad forgot to pack his tennis shoes for the 1 mile fitness run". Now in my defense this was not on the packing list. In truth I think he really enjoyed getting a laugh at my expense. But on the trip he made some new friends, slept well in his tent, and got some things signed off in his book. The adventure begins!
