Camping Out Urban Style

The boys decided to sleep out on the balcony. It was such a beautiful evening that I couldn't see why not... though I knew it was pretty doubtful that they would make it all night long. David was out of town, so I couldn't send him out there with the tent... and I knew the morning dew would be heavy.

But it was a great mutual project, and Annika even joined in - for about 15 minutes. By the time the boys finished, a good portion of their bedroom was outside - they even packed (in suitcases) clothes and books, and their outdoor beds were neatly made.

In the end, Christopher lasted until 9.30, when he decided his mattress was more comfortable. I checked on Benjamin about 10, and he then decided he would be better off in my bed!
