As the week went on, things started looking better. It was still crazy, but at least we were all happy. Hannah still has been crying as she gets off the bus, but once inside she does fine. So, we have decided to continue her in school there. We had the "young adults" (or college kids) over for dinner on Thursday. Then on Friday, we headed for Yellowstone National Park.
Every year, the 3rd weekend in September, us, the Stahly's and a few others tend to head for Mammoth. We go to see the elk and listen to them bugle during mating season. This year it was just us and the Stahly's. We didn't leave until Friday afternoon, so the Mammoth campground was already full. So, we stayed in a campground by Gardiner. The girls enjoyed playing in the super fine black dirt. We were glad to leave that dirt behind!
Then Saturday morning, we drove down to Mammoth and secured a camping spot. We went back to Gardiner, got our campers and then headed back down. We didn't want to pull the campers the first time because if we didn't find a spot, . . . . Anyway, once we got back to Mammoth it was lunch time. The weather was real windy and rainy, so we decided to go on a drive. We stopped at Mammoth hot springs and walked the loop.
It was nice to get away for the weekend. We only got to go camping one other time this summer. We went to Bible camp 3 times in our camper, but that's not really camping! We got up early this morning and headed back to Belgrade just in time for worship. When we got home, we got the camper all cleaned up for the winter. Ed still has to winterize it, but today the weather is rainy. He'll have to do it soon though!
