July was camp time. I signed her up for 4 different camps- Artivisim, Bible camp, theater camp, and church retreat. While she was at camp, I went to school and worked on how to switch from our excellent state math standards to the Cruddy Common Core State Standards. Yes. I was at my desk much of this summer. I don't tell you that to illicit sympathy, only to show you what kind of time it really takes to make these transitions that don't need to be made.
August was spent mostly trying to figure out this dead hard drive problem. Mid-month, I was back at work for four days of meetings and trainings. Yikes! However in the midst of this we were able to squeeze in a few days at the coast with some friends.
We have camped at Fort Stevens numerous times, but this year we rented a cabin instead of a tent site or a yurt. A cabin. With a kitchenette. And a gas grill. And a bathroom. AND A SHOWER. Yeah. This is camping.
I'll post more about the bike trails and historic part of Fort Stevens in the next installment. Stay tuned!
