Since Sickie was feeling slightly better, we decided to go exploring a little before heading home from Missouri.
We hiked down into Greer Spring.Â The woods we walked through were beautiful.Â Then we drove a little way and tried hiking to a few different springs along the same trail.Â We stopped at Blue Spring and tried to walk further, but decided that the ticks won this time and we returned to the car. Even though we checked and double checked everyone before leaving, we still discovered a few on our way home.
The trip home was uneventful.Â We stopped at a few places to stretch and the kids slept or read most of the trip home. We finished reading all but two chapters of Tom Saywer.
Once we got home, we started the fun job of cleaning everything!Â We put our waterlogged camera in a bowl of rice.Â Within a week, it had dried out enough to start working properly again!
