Random Five - a few days late

1. We spent Friday at the lake, and I actually camped out in our tent. It was the first time in 10 years. I was pretty dosed up on allergy meds and my favorite essential oil allergy blend Spark Naturals LLP.

2. We had a really cool real life science experience. We had been studying about how insects shed their hard exoskeletons. When we were camping we saw lots of the left over skeletons all over the tree trunks. Captain thought it was really cool to see the evidence of the science we had just discussed that very day.

3. The kids had a great time with their friends jumping into the lake. There was no swim beach but some low rocks that went into the lake where it was very deep and safe to jump. Jam and his friend checked out the area to make sure, and we made sure no one dived etc... The water was colder that it was at the peak of the season but still warm enough to swim. It was probably the last time for the year.

4. The camping adventure was organized by our Church ward. They organized the food for dinner and breakfast. We had a great time with lots of friends. It was fun sitting around the campfire with old and new friends. Some brought their instruments and played while others sang. Kids played games and roasted marshmallows. Such a fun time.

5. We are starting to gear up for our first swim meet of the winter USA swim season. I can't wait to get back in the swing!
