The kids are all running around, and the parents are all hanging out,
chatting. At this age each group more or less amiably ignores the
other. I love the kids getting older.
Camping is a big part of Peninsula education. I was skeptical of it at first– I’ve not done a lot of camping, to tell the truth– but the kids love it, and they DO learn a lot. By the time they’re in 8th grade, they’re planning the entire thing.
