I Survived the Retreat!

Yay! I survived the Senior Retreat! In the woods, with no internet and far away bathrooms!

It actually was a really fun time! We did a high ropes course and made s'mores around the bonfire. It was all really really fun!

Unfortunately, due to the retreat and our Pre Cana classes (which we also really enjoyed), I didn't have any time to be crafty this weekend. I am hoping that I am able to be a bit crafty tonight, maybe AJ will want to watch Monday Night Football, so I can work on cleaning up my craft desk so I can get to scrapping on it!

But until then, I do have some pictures of camping in the woods!

Top Row: My bunk. I didn't realize that our sleeping bag was so narrow until I unrolled it when I got there. It was definitely a cozy fit!
Middle Row: All harnessed up for the high ropes course (despite my intense fear of heights!) ~ The stairs to the first level. It had to be about 20 feet off of the ground! ~ Almost immediately after reaching the platform, I came right back down through the repelling rope (that's not me in the picture though, I took this picture from a safe spot on the ground!), but I'm glad I tried it!
Bottom Row: The camp was really pretty ~ The bonfire, the kids (and teachers) all got to make s'mores, yum!

I can't believe how quickly this weekend flew by. As much as I enjoyed the retreat, and the Pre Cana classes, I need some sleep! I wasn't able to sleep in once, or go for a walk with AJ, or even get any cleaning done! I have a feeling this is going to be a crazy week with catching up on weekend chores, and doing all of our Pre Cana homework for next week!

Do you ever have weekends that get so crazy that you need a day off to recover from your weekend?

Pre Cana homework? Oh my!! You are busy!! Hope you can catch up on some of your craftiness and other things tonight!
