JUNIOR HIGH CAMP!

My two older kids left for winter camp this morning with the Junior High group from our church. My daughter was especially excited to go since her friends were going also. She's so funny....last week her exact words to me were, "Mom, I need three new outfits for camp." MY exact words back to her were, "You're not going on vacation, you're going to CAMP." So, we compromised and I bought her three new tops! She was happy with that! I don't even know the name of the camp they're going to, but we just know that they are in good hands..LOL!! It's even more quiet in the house with them gone. But, they'll be back Sunday evening and it will be like they never left.

The good ole' church bus!

What fun! Brendan went on his first overnight church camp last summer and I was so happy and sad for him at the same time! He had so much fun though! It was the first time being away with the exception of family! Hoping they enjoy their time away and hoping you enjoy a more quiet house! Enjoy those little ones!!
