Ben and Camping

Ben said the funniest thing this weekend though. He went camping with the deacons and they went to a campground 45 min away. In Houston traffic I would bet it took longer. And he was complaining WHY do we have to go places like that. (You know, camp in the WOODS?) I laughed out loud. Because that is what camping is! His favorite camp was on the soccer field at Saudi Aramco and in someone's backyard here in Texas because that's what the eleven year old scouts did here.

I fear this kid may prefer glamping where you can sneak in a few video games when the leaders aren't looking over actual camping.

"Mom, it's not fair. The reeves have like a quarter mile long house and we have one that is like four rooms wide."

Explaining "retirement" to Ashlyn:
"It's like when you save up a lot of money, like, like a lot, like a thousand dollars. Then you don't have to work."
She asked a few questions and he got instantly frustrated she didn't get it.
"NO! It's like when you save a lot like a thousand, no a million, no, actually you had to save a thousand dollars to retire." And he was fully confident in his answer. How do I tell him a thousand dollars is a normal monthly mortgage payment???
