I have a whole list of drafts in various states of completion. But they all seem just a little bit too hard right now. The owners of The Campground are away at the moment, which means we’re working every day. I’ve lost my voice, which makes both working and parenting more difficult. I’m sooooo tiiiiiiiired.
But this week marks ONE YEAR in The Campground, so I can’t let it go by without a blog. And that can only mean one thing…. It’s time for a lazy photo blog.
And so, I present: A year in The Campground (in photos)

It’s been a BIG YEAR. In and around these photos there have been ups and downs. Some things have been surprisingly easy. Other things have been very very hard. But one year in, we’ve made it through together, and we don’t regret the decision to come here for a second.
