For quite awhile now Drew has been wanting to go out in the woods and "rough it".....like make a tent out of sticks, eat only what you catch kind of roughing it. Since he was such a big help when Todd was out of town, he told Drew he would take him out to Grandpa's cabin and do just that last night. Drew pored over a couple different books, got his ideas, spent days packing his gear and was ready to go yesterday. He was convinced he could do it all without Todd's help. Well, this kid blew me away with all that he did. I have a million pictures and I tried to narrow it down to tell the story, but I apologize, there are still a lot of pictures. I'm just so proud of him.
They found a spot in the woods to set up camp. Drew started building his tent with string and a skinny log.

Drew cut down some of the long grasses to put under his plastic floor to make cushioning to sleep on. Pretty ingenius I thought!
They celebrated with breakfast at The Coach House before coming home. Drew was just all aglow over his time at the cabin and has thanked Todd numerous times for taking him to do this. I think Drew learned a lot about himself and what he is capable of if he puts his mind to it and I loved to see the pride in himself and his appreciation to his dad. A night well spent!!
