Social networking in the woods
Jack, Andrew and Simone have met a friend. One of the weekenders who came to stay at the campground. His name is Chris, and I might adopt him. He's creative and bright and so kind to my children.
They've been playing together all morning. I can see and hear them, so I haven't been checking in much.
I went over just to see if they needed anything, and saw a sketch on the picnic table, made with used charcoal. They were all four huddled around it.
"What are y'all doing?" I asked.
Chris: "We're making a strategy to get the rooster. These are the plans," and he pointed to the drawing.
Jack: "And this..." (putting a tree branch in front of his face) "....is my disguise."
