Always Better with a Friend
We are back from children's camp. It was so great.....AGAIN! This year's theme was BOOT CAMP and I'm making a collage to show you just how fun it was. Camp is the big event we really look forward to each summer. PandaPop is an amazing children's minister in how he totally cares for the spiritual well-being of these kiddos. Along with the "fun", they got lots of Biblical truths and hefty spiritual meat to chew on for awhile.
Our camp is cute and up-to-date, but not state-of-the-art, hip & slick like a lot of camps these days. Not to diminish ANYTHING about those kinds of camps, but we LOVE that our camp is JUST our church. This is the second year that we were on the same campground facility as our youth ministry. We get to interact with the kids and the volunteers at various points in the day. It is a huge blessing to be one big family at camp for a week, but still have age appropriate activities going on. I LOVE laughing so hard that I can't breathe and there was ample opportunity for that to happen this past week! Good laugh therapy.
As always, PP and I love coming up with next year's theme and are sooooo pumped about it!!
PandaGirl was able to have her sweet friend come along with us to camp this week. Her friend's three older sisters were already there so we brought her, too. I adored having a companion for PG....it allowed me much more freedom! They only had about three times where I had to say, "Get it together or else....". Pretty good for two girls to be in such close quarters for five days.
Hold on---BOOT CAMP 2010 collage is coming!
