Another Hot Day Ahead

:::::::::::::::Another Camp Update:::

Michael was able to update his blog, yesterday. I. also, spoke to him from the pay phone. He had a phone card from a previous vacation that had time left on it, so we didn't have to keep dealing with poor cell coverage.

Aaron was able to send me an email:
"Hi Mom. How'ya doin, so far i've fallen down and cut up my knee, and accidentally grabbed thorns =). I'm taking astronomy,personal fitness, first aid, fishing, reptile and amphibian study, woodcarving, oh yeah I sliced my finger at woodcarving, HOORAY! I bought a nice new knife with the money i earned its a straight blade it does not lock but it is spring assisted to make it safer, when you close, if you push a little on the balde a few times, there is a whetstone that will sharpen it inside the handle, its really cool. Im having lots of fun Gabriel is here hes having fun too, i miss you guys.
LOVE you guys,see ya soon
Aaron, Pokemon Wizard"

Here is part of my response: "So if you hurt yourself a few more times do you evolve to a new level? Your classes sound sooooo cool... Did you get all the thorns out of your hand? I'm glad your having fun! Isaac came by and I told him you would be back this weekend.Try to stop injuring yourself, if possible. Please drink water and will keep you healthier. I love you!!!!!!!!!!

See ya soon,

Mom of the Pokemon Wizard, Aaron :)

The photo of Eve with the binoculars sets the mood for the rest of the shots. Well done.

Please do more of the "just because" layouts. "Just because" is a good enough reason for me.
