Spring Weather

Spring weather sure is changeable. On March 11, the weather was like this:

Then on March 13, the weather was in the 30s and rainy for Mary's Girl Scout Camp-out:

We had to make sure she had enough clothes to keep her warm and dry. She's got 5 layers on top (shirt, sweater, fleece jacket, raincoat, coat) and two on bottom (fleece pants, rain pants) plus wool socks and rain boots. Doesn't she look ready for adventure? She loved the hike, the food, the stories in the tent, and helping the Juniors. The leaders said she had a hard time sleeping, because of some problems with her sleeping bag, but when I picked her up, she was cheerfully sipping Adventure Hot Chocolate and excited about her first real camp out.

Thankfully, it's warmed up a bit this week. Here they are exploring the creek. All that rain really added up. The frogs like it, too. They keep singing, "Creeeeeek, creeeeek, we live in the creeeeeeek."
