A fun filled day at camp
And then just after this Asher had a 1 minute Tonic Clonic. I still had my camera out but quickly ran over to her and Brendon. I think my camera cable must have bounced out of my bag at this time, as when we got home it was missing.
I went to our room with Asher so that she could have a sleep and Brendon headed out with the camera.
Hezekiah having fun.
Water slide fun.
I love this photo Brendon got of them all looking while the other team has their go.
Hezekiah was not just a spectator. Such a great in action shot.
Hannah and her friend Ruth. They played so wonderfully together last year and just picked it up again this year. They were almost always together. Hannah had such a great time.
Ruth didn't have many friends her age at camp. She had wanted to help in the kitchen though (as she did last year) but had more courage to get involved this year (and go and ask what she could do). So that was great to see. She was again included in many games with older children, so she also had a good time. The thing I wish I had gotten a photo of was her playing table tennis. I heard that she has really improved amazingly since last year. There was an older boy who played with her and he commented on how well she was playing. Brendon was also really impressed when he got to play with her. Nice job Ruth.
Ruth tried one out as an instrument. It reminded her of the Didgeridoo we have.
And then it was the Talent Concert in the evening. I didn't think ahead before starting the video - sorry. Half way I realise I will see better on the steps, so I hope you don't get sea sick as I walk over. I didn't want to stop recording. They sang really well and I was so pleased to be able to hear Ruth. She harmonises so beautifully and I wasn't sure if we would be able to hear her in such a big hall. After this Brendon joined in for a bit of fun and laughs with a verse in a bit of an opera style. :-)
Everyone was very excited when James came up. We all enjoyed his ventriloquist puppet last year. It was a bit confusing when he got the children to draw this face. Hezekiah added the nose, and then Hannah added some ears (which got a laugh as they looked like Shrek ears - nice touch Hannah).
The first surprise was when the eyes started moving.
And then it started talking. So much fun.
We were all pleased when he brought Danny out again this year.
