Last weekend Ken and the boys joined some other fellows for a weekend of “wilderness survival.” The boys learned to use knives and compasses, start a fire, filter water, and other rugged skills. They also became astoundingly filthy.
While they were gone, the girls and I enjoyed the air-conditioned comfort of home, watched a chick-flick, slept on comfortable mattresses, and then were treated to a six course “Queen’s Tea”.
My dear mother-in-law reserved an elegant tea-room where we dined on cucumber sandwiches and scones with Devonshire cream–amid other delicacies. The girls were graceful and proper young ladies! Thanks, Grandma for a special treat! (That’s my lovely mother-in-law in the lower right photo.)
Aren’t the girls lovely stair-steps at these ages? Kendra may catch (or likely pass) Kaira in height at some point, but right now, their heights match their birth-order. (That’s not true when the boys are pictured. Keegan’s a year younger than Keianna, but presently a smidge taller.)
They boys relished fabulous adventures, but Queen’s Tea was delectable (and apparently less messy.)
