While in their bath, I was talking to the kids about noises they might hear and what to do if they got scared. This prep talk scared Mataya, so she decided just to sleep in her bed. Joash was very excited and went to bed just fine. And that night it rained, for the first time in a long time (it is very dry here). When Wilbert put up the tent, he figured the rain fly would just make the tent hot, so he didn't put it on. So, Joash got a bit wet, but still spent most of the night in the tent.
Mataya felt brave the next morning, and with a little coaching and reassurance from Joash, decided to spend that night in the tent. We dried everything up and put the rain fly on and both kids went to sleep in the tent that night.
At about 1:30 am, I woke up hearing Mataya crying and screaming the tent. Wilbert went down and she was having one of her bad dreams, so he got her out of the tent and she slept the rest of the night in her bed.
Joash had lots of fun and I think he is looking forward to spending more nights in the tent in summers to come.
