Catch up!!

Okay! I know I'm a little late updating the remainder of our week at children's camp. Am I just now recovering 4 weeks later? Yes! It was an amazing week and as always - God delivered! It was great to see all the kids respond to Brother Jarrod's message and grow in their own walk with Christ and we also saw some who came to know Christ as their personal Lord and Savior! Totally worth the lack of sleep and hard work!!

Wednesday was "nerd" day - yes that is my son!
Thursday night was the finale of "camp idol" so much fun!

Wednesday we took the kids on a hike and they had bible study down at the creek - it was a pleasantly cool day - perfect for the hike!
Thursday was camp t-shirt day so we all wore our tshirts and took a group picture.
This is Candy and I with our staffers - these are kids from the church that are in high school and we work them HARD all week - they set up/tear down/clean up/and anything else they are asked to do, and they all did it with such a sweet spirit - their parents would have been so proud!!

I got so close to them during the week that after we got home from camp I made them each a little scrapbook with some pictures of the week. The staffers also performed DAILY skits that were SO funny - they kids loved them and so did all the adults. Here are a few pictures of the scrapbooks I made them. There were 8 of them so I was busy!!

I made them out of chipboard and used paper and embellishments I all ready had - yes I have a LOT of stash!
I put their initial on the front of each book.
They were a lot of work, but I enjoyed doing them and I think they really liked them~

So right now I'm working on a few projects, including a baby shower for one of my closest friends - and she had a GIRL so it will be fun, but in the meantime this is pretty much what our family is doing night and day.......................

It's fun, but whoa! Lots of laundry, driving around and there needs to be a 24 hour rotation of food going on for these hungry boys! Later!
