Into the Wild (we go)

My macro exam was PAINFUL, but it's over so I don't even care.  All I have to do now is wait for my marks for this semester.  I have the next week and a half (two full weekends!!!!) sans school!  Summer classes start on the 3rd with a devil of a math class. So, I plan to take full advantage of this school-less time to get caught up on some stuff.

We're going camping in Algonquin this weekend!! The site is booked and I called today to make sure there were no fire bans (yeah- it's WAY to early to camp without a fire for heat here) and checked the weather network (19 and sunny!).  So, we'll get the car packed up tonight and head up early tomorrow morning.  I plan to spend the day hiking to some places that we used to go to when I was kid so I can show them off to Bub.  I'm most looking forward to trying to find this little waterfall/rapids we used to swim in.  If I can find it- it's an unmarked trail off of a trail that's off of another trail... and it's been about 15 years since I've been there- we're going to picnic lunch there.

We'll get the girls good and worn out and then head back to the campsite for steak and ceasar and then a campfire (complete with beer and marshmellows)  :)  I plan to get up early on Sunday morning a) because it's supposed to rain to I'll want to get the tent down before it gets soaked b) because I want to take a tea down to the lake and just enjoy the quiet for a couple of minutes and c) because I want to go shoot some moose (just pictures of course) and the best time is first thing in the morning.

I'm so excited I can hardly stand it.  Hopefully I'll get some good shots to post here.  I've told everyone that I'll be in the wilds of Algonquin for the weekend and not to try to contact me.  I need some peace, space and fresh air.  It's going to be great.

I think "marks" sounds so much more sophisticated than "grades."

Have fun camping. Still way too cold here. We got several inches of snow last night and it's still coming down. :(

I hope your weather behaved! You would not have wanted to be camping here. It snowed :(
Enjoy your school-less days!
