I'm back

Bet you didn't even know I was gone. You did? I'm impressed. Didn't mean to be gone this long but we just spent last week at church camp and then this week has been so busy getting caught up with everything around here and trying to get rested up. The first part of the week was for our elementary kids and we only cooked for about 50 including counselors. The kids absolutely love church camp and are never ready to go home. Guess that is a good thing. I especially love watching them worship Jesus. It is so sweet and so pure.
I had also brought Noah with me for the kids camp. He had so much fun and felt so big. I also couldn't keep his shoes on him. It's not like him to go barefoot all the time but he apparently loved it. His feet were just black at night for his bath. I should have taken a picture of them. I sure don't want to hear from him that he can't go barefoot here anymore.
From Thursday through Monday we held the teen camp and let me tell you we were completely packed. The camp holds 160 and we had everything filled. We had 5 churches including ours and the power of God fell on those kids. It was amazing. After we got home, there were so many excited comments about camp, those wishing we were still there, looking forward to next year, wanting to stay in contact with all the new friends they made. Incredible how God blessed our camp. This has been a dream of ours to have this camp filled ever since we began with just a few campers seven years ago. Actually, Gary and I have long wanted to run a teen camp but kind of gave up that idea but I see this dream being placed in our kids hearts. Maybe they can accomplish this and we can help.
 Jamie and Kacee came on Thursday night to stay for teen camp. Of course the boys came with them. Jonah loved it because it was all outdoors, Noah loved it for the new friends he made.
