Matthew's tent

In February Matthew saved up his money to buy a tent.  He is as into camping and outdoor activities as his father is not.  Perhaps it is his form of rebellion?  Haha.  Anyway, after he bought the tent he could not wait to try it out.  Never mind that it was the coldest month in Texas and the temperature was in the mid 30s at night.  

He figured out how to set it up himself and has spent many weekend nights "camping."  However he likes company and can usually persuade Melissa or Isaac to join him.  A few times it dropped to freezing and I'd check on the kids to make sure they were toasty warm in their sleeping bags.   Only once did they come inside because it got too cold in the night.
