I have mentioned how crazy this past week has been, but it hasn’t prevented me from realizing what I am grateful for.
I will start with the young lady I am tutoring. Her name is Christine, and even though she was born in France, her parents are American and they are from nearby Massachusetts in the Wallum Lake area. I have been helping her complete an online English course and she has been fun to work with. Her friend has been sitting in on our session and she has been a delight too. Thanks Claudia and Christine for being great students!
I am grateful to my uncle that I don’t see too often because he lives about 75 miles away. He is also camping this week, right down the road in the same campground as me and his stories still crack me up as they’ve been doing for the past 40 years. Thanks Uncle Russell!
I am grateful to my boyfriend for helping us bring down the camping supplies. With his truck he managed the large gas grill, the bicycles, a plastic shelving unit for the “kitchen” and plenty of firewood so far. Probably have enough for at least another 5-6 days. Think we can make it stretch. Thanks Jason!
I am grateful for Burlingame Campground. It has been a part of my life for more than 40 years. I first went camping with Mom and Dad, then spent 2 weeks at a time with my aunt and her kids when I was younger. We know where everything is and feel comfortable there. It allows me to relax and kick back and just enjoy my time with the kids and any company that manages to come for a visit.
I am so very grateful the weather has been decent so far. The past 2 years we have been nearly flooded out of our campsite with summer rains and so far, so good this year. We’ve had an early morning sprinkle 2 days, but it is all cleared up by the time I roll out of my tent.
