Oh! And FYI:

I forgot to mention to you that my children, after spending 4 days camping were NOT TIRED. I'm not sure if you've encountered NOT TIRED yet in the children in your life, but in case you have not, I thought I'd give you a brief summary.

NOT TIRED causes many children to bicker their little hearts out until someone forbids them from speaking, in which case, they then fall into a decidedly NOT TIRED stance such as:

Of course, NOT TIRED related bickering lasts long enough that the alternative NOT TIRED stance is not reached until the children are a mere 15 minutes from home. And then NOT TIRED causes children- blurry-eyed and falling asleep into their dinner plates- to declare with an admirable earnestness that they are indeed NOT TIRED.

Just a little heads up, from me to you.

(The little boy pictured is our neighbor, who is basically a member of our family, and who rode with us camping so that his parents had more cargo space to haul more of our combined camping gear.)

Oh yes, this is familiar. My mom loves to tell stories about how my sister and I would come home from slumber parties, announce defiantly that we were NOT TIRED, and then fall asleep with our faces in our lunches.
