The Back Porch And Camping Out

The weather here, is so perfect, that I am going to try to write this on my Kindle.  I do not want to spend time indoors, when I can sip iced coffee on the back porch.  It is cool(er) here, because my Tomer, had the gumption and common sense enough to put a roof on it... and plant a tree, in just the right spot to provide lots of shade.  He, is actually napping beside me as I write this.  :)
Our two oldest Grandboys are here, so Tomer's nap, will be short lived.  They have pitched our tent and along with a friend, are planning on spending the night out here.  If Scooter AKA Xavier, actually does...I will be flabbergasted!  I'm pretty sure that the first noise, rustle of a leaf, Dog barking or the sight of any bug life...Will have that boy screeching and heading to the houses.  LOL.
Papa, has wood ready for the fire pit and I have hot dogs and marshmallows for roasting over the fire...nothing tastes better on a summer's night.  Hopefully, they get along because that isn't always the case! Surprise!!!  With a 6 year age difference there can be some arguing and yes, even smacking going on..A 14 year old is quite different than an 8 year old... who is prone to whining and wanting his own way.  But such is life ...they are growing up so quickly that we will enjoy them while they are little.  One day they will be grown men, with families of their own.   I pray, they are men of character, who remember a Papa and Grammy who loved them and instilled in them,  a sense of commitment to both God and family.
Okay, now I am feeling melancholy...time to end this here, I want to be in my happy place...sigh.

I could picture everything as you were writing. Sounds so lovely on your porch with your hubby beside you and grandsons making plans for backyard camping. What fun. Hope they do get along and enjoy the tent. And send some cool weather my way. Ugh! It's hot here.
