Have you ever noticed that when you do something that is fun, but a lot of work, at the end you are really worn out, tired, and sometimes negative about the experience, but let a little (or sometimes a lot) of time pass, and what you remember are the positives and you want to do it again.
Today we dealt with some of the short term results. I spent the evening and morning with some of my siblings and parents, while the hubs took the 4 older kids camping.
I got home shortly after the hubs and kids, to find Spike screaming. Turns out he didn't sleep that well, and then Aurora woke him early this morning. The hubs was worn out and so was Aurora. Cinderella and Guy didn't seem to be hit quite as hard. But true to form, give it some time, maybe a month, maybe a few months, and they will be talking about how much fun they had, and how they can't wait to do it again.
