Our Interesting Day

Hello Everyone,
We had quite the adventure today! We took our stuff to the land (since we have to be out tomorrow) and unpacked. Syd and I were setting up a tent - her and I will be sleeping in it for now - and it started to rain before we had the top on! So we threw it on hoping that it was going on correctly, and unfortunately it was upside down. So we fixed it and by then it was pouring. Once we finished the tent, I picked up a hammer and rake and started running to the shed to put them up when I noticed we had rakes/tools all over the place! (Uncle Jess and his family had come over, and the girls helped us rake.) So I had a few more trips to make, and was in such a hurry I somehow brought a thorn bush to the shed with me (lol). By the time we got to the house, Syd and I were soaked and had mud all over our hands and arms.
Then we headed out, Dad and Syd in the Budget truck and Mom and I in our truck. Well, our driveway just happens to be red dirt/clay, and since it rained it was all slippery. Mom and I went first and as we went up the hill, we peeled out. Finally, after Dad reminded Mom that the truck had four-wheel-drive, we made it up. Well, the Budget truck didn't have four-wheel-drive, so Dad kept on peeling out. Mom and I were watching them, and she had the idea of throwing sticks in front of the truck for traction. So, she and I got out in the rain and began throwing sticks in front and Dad and Syd got out to help. The drive was so slippery that both Syd and I almost fell. After a while, Dad got in the truck to test it ... and it worked! On the way home something scratched my arm and I looked down and a thorn branch in my hair...and I couldn't get it out! ( I finally did after working at it for a while.=)
Well, that was our interesting day. I am SO excited that we will be living there starting tomorrow! YAY! =D
(I am sorry if this is a bit choppy, but I am in a hurry)

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot
