Goin To Camp

It has been a crazy fun week for the girls here.... Getting ready to go to church camp. Claire and Tookie get to go together this year.....
Here is tookie transforming our living room into a camp/fort.

Here's the girls shaving up before the big week.

Packed up and ready to go.

Saying some "goodbyes."

And off we go....
It takes us a super-long 21.4 minutes to get to the camp that the girls have been counting down the days to since this time last year.

The last 20 minutes of the countdown are the longest.

(just a side note...i love it that i live in an area where you can drive 20 minutes away and feel like you are lightyears away)

 This year the girls are in the same cabin.
Not what they would have chosen, necessarily.
But just the way it worked out.

 I had a nice little discussion with the two of them,
reminding them that this is church camp
and there is no reason why they can't try to get closer to each other
and God at the same time......

....I'm pretty sure this conversation included several
eye rolls.....

I love Spring Valley Bible Camp.

I would go if they would let me.

Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for making camp possible for the girls....

And for driving me away when it was past the "parent-stalking" time.

(i want to live at church camp)

  1. Robin, I loved church camp! Ours was in Arkansas--home church in Rock Island! Only 17 hours away!!! This was b.i. (before interstate). We filled up a bus and went. Good memories.
