Jamie’s sigh of relief

For the past few years, Jamie has taken Bode on our church’s father-son camp-out with the Scouts. On Bode’s first adventure, he’d had a big day: his preschool class went to a play at Heritage Square, followed by a fun night with the Scouts of Capture the Flag, roasting marshmallows and hot dogs and basic revelries any boy would love.

As he and Jamie contentedly nestled in their sleeping bags under a blanket of stars, Bode queried:

“Do you know what’s better than camping, Daddy?”

“What, Bode?”


It has taken Jamie a few years to recover from that one but I’m sure he was very pleased when I asked Bode his favorite part about going camping at Bear Creek Lake State Park last weekend and he replied, “Killing fire ants.”

My, what a difference a few years makes.
