A visit and back home
Her bike and scooter have been well used by many children this weekend. It was nice for her to get a few laps around the court this morning. She normally does laps around our deck, so it was nice and therapeutic for her to do something similar to her home routines.
She does love these flowers and as they are weeds, she can often find them. She loves pulling them apart, each little flower at a time.
After the service and lunch we headed off to spend the afternoon with Daniel's family. They stay just 20 minutes from the camp site. So it was a perfect opportunity to meet them.
Thanks so much Katrina for the lovely dairy and gluten free snack. :-)
Oh - and your strawberries were wonderfully sweet. I can't believe I didn't get to have a look at your vegetable garden. It must be amazing.
I had to quickly get my camera out when the children all headed to the gate for our departure. I believe this is a bit of a family tradition - so we enjoyed getting to be a part of it.
We had to smile when just a couple of minutes after we got back to camp, Daniel arrived. Hezekiah had forgotten his shoes. They had tried to call us, but we didn't have signal. So he brought them. There was plenty of dinner, so he was invited to stay for dinner and the Q&A session that evening.
Thank you so much to the churches that run this camp for letting us tag along for all these years. It's such a special time for the children to catch up with friends. It's the one time in the year that we put an effort in to get away - and so it's really special. (Getting away has been that much harder over the last 3 years - so it's meant so much more).
