Pilgrim life

My husband and I have been worried lately that our kids are getting really spoiled.

  • We both decided that when we had kids, we didn’t want them to have jobs and wanted them to focus on school and getting into a good college.

However, I think this may have caused them to not appreciate all the wonderful things they have because they don’t have to work for anything other than their grades. So, this summer we my husband and I decided that we were going to ship them off to a camp so that they could learn to appreciate the little things we know they take for granted. One thing about this camp is that it doesn’t have any kind of heating and cooling system. The cabins don’t have air conditioning and neither do any of the other big meeting rooms around camp. My kids aren’t going to know what hit them because they are constantly blasting the air conditioner in the house. Our electric bill each month is always through the roof because of the way the treat the air conditioner. I really hope that when they come back from camp they will stop using the air conditioner as much as they are now or at the very least I hope they really appreciate having the ability to live in a home that has access to a working HVAC system. Some kids aren’t as luck to grow up the way my kids have grown up and I really just want them to realize this.
