Have you noticed how plans have a way of changing themselves? As it happened to us this past weekend, sleeping in our sardine can of a tent, we couldn't help but be reminded of another big plan we had as newlyweds. As we looked at our little sardines, in their silent, still slumber, we couldn't help but be thankful that our plans had been changed.
When we bought our "4 man tent" it was just the two of us, we had only been married a few months and figured it would last us at least ten years, because we weren't going to have any children for five years. Here we are 8 years later with TWO children who were both born before we had been married for five years. Wow, were we off! A four man tent is not really comfortably big enough for four men, because it isn't comfortable for a family of four with two SMALL children!
