Church Camp 2016 - part 2
Below: Not long after breakfast Brendon, Asher, Shadow and I headed out for a walk. It was a bit misty out, but we were hopeful that it wouldn't rain. The other kids were all happily playing with their different friends. It was a nice change for us with Asher, at least we could keep our shoes dry on the road (rather than walking on the wet grass).
The guys are really patient with her and even let her have a couple of throws.
This boy with the broken arm was especially good with the little children. I often saw him with Hezekiah too, letting him sit on his lap or playing together.
I'm glad I could get a photo of Ruth on the flying fox today.
The trip home went really well. Ruth sat in the front with Brendon and I so that I could read to her (we have been enjoying a great series and are onto the 4th and final book now). I put Hannah and Hezekiah in the far back, with just Rachel watching Asher in the middle section. The plan worked and the quieter environment meant that Asher did have a nap on the way home. So I was really thankful for this.
Church Camp is always such a highlight for the children every year. I will be honest and say that it was a lot more work with our FAILSAFE diet and Asher's extra care needs, but it was worth it. It was great to get away and enjoy a change. It's always a blessing to meet up with old friends and make some new ones, as well as being encouraged spiritually - from the teachings and the fellowship.
