Let's begin. Children are mentioned in this post in case you want to skip down to Mr. Linky and add your own without reading mine.
On Wednesday afternoon, we decided to go house camping. We packed our backpacks with all necessary items (though only I was allowed to carry matches) including a tent, and then marched through the house, pretending each piece of furniture was a bit of nature. We finally found a clearing to pitch our tent and set up camp in the living room. Exhausted from our hike and tent pitching, we all collapsed in the tent and talked about what we wanted to do on our trip.
I was elected to prepare dinner since I am the only one in our camping party allowed to light matches or work the microwave. I made mud juice and sticks (fine, chocolate milk and pretzels) along with soy-dogs and carrots. After dinner, I took a candle out from my pack and we toasted marshmallows over the flame.
I know you're probably sitting there thinking, "I never knew you could do that." I only know that it's possible because of a synchronized eating routine I choreographed for the Olympics at my old middle school where part of our routine included making smores in unison.
Marshmallows burned over a candle cannot be healthy for you--I mean, the blackened exterior should be the first heads up that something is not quite right. But they taste exactly the same as they do when they're created outside. So...I'm going under the assumption that doing it one or two times a year can't kill you.
We finished off the evening by climbing the stair mountain, swimming in the bathtub stream, and hatching those sponge capsules in the shape of insects. And that's how we do camping.
What are you showing today?
Click here or scroll down to the bottom of this post if this is your first time joining along (hint: link to the permalink for the post, not the main url for your blog and use your blog's name, not your name). The list is open from now until late Tuesday night and a new one is posted every week.
Other People Standing at the Head of the Class:
Want to bring something to Show and Tell?
- If you would like to join circle time and show something to the class, simply post each Saturday night (or earlier in the week or on Monday if you can't do the weekend), hopefully including a picture if possible, and telling us about your item. It can be anything--a photo from a trip, a picture of the dress you bought this week, a random image from an old yearbook showing a person you miss. It doesn't need to contain a picture if you can't get a picture--you can simply tell a story about a single item. The list opens every Saturday night and closes on Tuesday night.
- You must mention Show and Tell and include a link back to this post in your post so people can find the rest of the class. This spreads new readership around through the list. This is now required.
- Label your post "Show and Tell" each week and then come back here and add the permalink for the post via the Mr. Linky feature (not your blog's main url--use the permalink for your specific Show and Tell post).
- Oh, and then the point is that you click through all of your classmates and see what they are showing this week. And everyone loves a good "ooooh" and "aaaah" and to be queen (or king) of the playground for five minutes so leave them a comment if you can.
- Did you post a link and now it's missing?: I reserve the right to delete any links that are not leading to a Show and Tell post or are the blogging equivalent of a spitball.
