We’re getting ready to go on our annual camping trip. We leave before the crack of dawn on Saturday the 19th and come back the evening of Thursday the 24th. It is a 10 hour drive each way. We camp in tents and pack in just about everything but water. It takes a wee bit of planning.
“Why don’t you invite your friend Michael to go with us?” we suggest to Devin (2 weeks ago!) He is old enough to do this himself and then let the parents work out the minutiae of the details.
He remembered to call Michael. Yesterday.
Michael’s mom called me, laughing, and relayed the message Devin left on their answering machine. (Yesterday)
“Yeah, hey Michael, it’s Devin. We’re going camping, do you want to go? We have stuff for fishing and s’mores. We’re going, um, I think the 18th through the, um 22nd. So, um, if you want to go camping, let me know by the 18th. Later.”
