Today is Armistice Day, and the kids have the day off school.
We took the girls with us on a scouting trip down to Piney Creek Wilderness. The wilderness has access from Table Rock Lake, so we’re planning on Kayaking in here sometime then camping and hiking the area. It should make a good 3-4 day excursion. We wanted to get down here now because the deer hunting season starts tomorrow, and for a while it won’t be a good idea to go hiking in the wilderness.
Our plan was to get right down to the lakeshore, but we didn’t quite make it. We had to be back in Springfield early in the evening because Katie is playing in the orchestra for the school’s presentation of ‘You’re a good man Charlie Brown’ this week. So we decided to stop for lunch just short of our planned destination. The girls did really well, we hiked around five miles and climbed over a thousand feet.
I couldn’t watch Katie play last night because it was my EfM tutorial night, so we went along tonight, and it was a great show. Afterward to celebrate we treated Katie and ourselves to ice cream at Braum’s.
