Family camp was everything our family needed and more. But I will say I’m so thankful to be home. We left early so that we could have two full days before school/work begins again. We have today to just rest, and tomorrow will be a full day of unpacking, laundry, house cleaning, etc. In the meantime I’m still working on organizing! It’s my favorite thing to do :-).
The second half of the week was just as relaxing as the first half. Honestly, we did a handful of activities, but the majority of the time the kids were happy in the game room. We spent a lot of time in there!!
Robert, Karis, and Ethan went mountain biking twice. They also did the zip tour. Levi can’t ride bikes and he was too light to do the zip tour so he can I just hung out. It was really nice.
Wednesday night was date night. It was beautiful in the prayer garden; each couple had their own little table separate from everyone else. We enjoyed steak with colorful veggies, finished off with some cheesecake. It was nice to be able to just sit and talk with my love without distraction. Throughout the meal there was a young lady playing violin, walking up and down.
Levi blew me away with his passion in worship this week!
Karis and I did the “Madhatter’s Tea Party” Thursday after they did the zip tour! We had so much fun!
Thursday night was Route 66 night! The kids had a blast! They bowled, hula hooped, drift triked, had a pie eating contest (just whip cream of course), and ate a ton of yummy unhealthy food!
The last day was pretty low key. Levi played black light dodgeball and had a little dance party in the black lights while the older kids were with their daddy.
The bouncy house was open again. They loved this obstacle course!
They got to do some crafts, then they went into the nerf room (no pics).
Our time at camp came to a close at about 3:30 when we left.
We will definitely be back next year! Lots of memories were made!
