When dinner was consumed, the two boys asked if we were sleeping outside tonight. I had to tell them that we couldn’t do that tonight, and I saw disappointment in their eyes. But fortunately they lit up when I told them we could do it in the weekend. They tried to persuade me that it was Friday tomorrow, but I didn’t fall for that. I asked them were they wanted to go, and they said they would like to go to the same place we stayed this weekend, to my relief. We didn’t go far, maybe 2 kilometres from our house. Which is far enough when I have to carry most of our equipment. It makes me so happy to see the kids longing for our camping trips. This is like sowing a seed in their hearts that hopefully will grow forever.
