Mama Goes a Campin'
|Here's my little Maddie, who you can plainly see is about a head shorter than most of her friends. She's a cute little shrimp, though.|
|Here are some of my chaperone buddies. Guess which one was the only one of us to swim in the lake with the kiddos. The rest of us felt it very important to stay on the shore so that we could watch and make sure everyone was okay.|
|I don't know the actual name of that big green thing in the water, but I would suggest "Giant Make-Em-Tired Thingy."|
|Here are most of the sweetest group of girls you'll ever meet. A couple missed the photo. Really, though, they are a remarkably wonderful group. I'm so thankful my girl has such great friends.|
Some of the sweetest times were each morning when the kids had a scheduled quiet Bible study time. They'd find a place alone out by the lake, and we'd see them reading their Bibles and having their own time with God. I'd wonder what was going on in those little heads of theirs, hoping it was meaningful time for them.
|This guy here can tell you that "running your race" with sin in your life really weighs you down!|
The next morning, a few lucky recruits got to live out the dream of every 10-year-old boy. Get half-naked and smeared with shaving cream. Then have lots of other kids throw cheese balls at you. For some of us it's a nightmare.
