I got to shoot a musket gun and hit the target in my first try. The outbound boys built boats out of cardboard & duck tape but they both sank.

It is hot but surprisingly, I woke up during the night because I was cold. The food hasn't been too bad.
Dr. Dave, Stroh, Emily and I are making a run to the nearest Walmart to get the flat tire replaced and pick up some extra supplies. We asked the GPS for directions and it took us up to the top of a mountain over a gravel road.
I have very little phone service at camp and the internet is not that great so I don't know if I'll be able to post everyday.
It took the Scouts a little longer than expected to get here. One van had a flat tire and was overheating a bit and one truck started to overheat. But the Scouts were resourceful and kept getting back on the road.
The camp is beautiful with tall pine trees and hills. We have 35 boys and 10 adults.

The first pic is Chris checking out a beaver dam. The second is Chris & Fiona (she's pretty dirty now.) The last one is me in a Mississippi swamp.

Then we started traveling up the Natchez Trace. We only made it to Jackson but we are looking forward to getting back on the Trace tomorrow. It's really cool. It's a Fed park/highway with historical things all along the way. It's a nice smooth road with no buildings or signs. It kinda reminds us of the roads at Disney. It goes all the way to Nashville. We are trying to decide if we should take it all the way or detour off to Memphis.

We left early this morning concentrating on just getting out of Texas.

|I loved this cute paint job.|
|Garrett's (wearing the "Young Guns" shirt) with friends.|
The boys got older and they switched out comforters with Marshall's being a blue pattern and Garrett's a green pattern. Then, Marshall moved out. We painted Marshall's room with blue stripes. Garrett stayed in the same room but both boys got loft beds with desks underneath.
|Painting the ceiling was relaxing on the loft bed.|
|Yes, the doors are silver.|
|Taking apart the loft bed.|

My sample pack came with tons of choices but, once again there wasn't one perfect shade. I mixed two of the samples together and voila! I found my perfect color. So, I placed an order and asked if I could have half one shade and half the other. They did it! I've been a happy camper ever since. It's time for me to re-order and hopefully I can remember which 2 colors I use....
This spring, I decided to check out their blush. Same thing, I ordered samples of a few shades. This time I figured that the Peachy Rose was just slightly too light. So, I ordered a peachy rose 10 gram jar plus a persimmon sample that I mixed at home. And once again, I have found a color that I love!!!! It looks just like my natural blush or sunburn.
The products are all natural, the customer service is awesome, and the makeup looks very natural. Try them out at http://www.theallnaturalface.com
