Mack went to Elementary Camp with our church last week. He had a blast! This was his first time to spend a week away from home like this, so I was nervous that he might get home sick, but he didn’t! He was glad to see us and happy to be home with a clean toilet and shower and comfy bed, but he had such a good time at camp that he was able to successfully endure any of the bad parts.
I LOVED when friends would send a photo of Mack smiling from ear to ear. It did my heart good.
He learned bible verses, heard amazing Bible truths morning and evening, learned to share his faith and practiced it with his friends, played games, went tubing, canoeing, played laser tag, and a gazillion things more!
We are so happy to have him home! And I must say that his bag came back in great shape. Dirty clothes were in the bag I sent him for dirty clothes. He brought back all of his toiletries and flip flops. I was just thoroughly impressed with him! Molly came home from her camp last year with a suitcase full of sopping wet clothes, so I really wasn’t expecting much from an 11 year old boy. Let’s just say he has learned from Molly’s mistakes.
And yes, the girls also went to church camp in Tennessee and had a blast, but I don’t have pictures I will post of them. They are at the age where everything has to be approved. I also saw several photos that I wouldn’t post because they just reveal that I still need to do some coaching with one of the girls on social interaction and boundaries. Ahhhh, the joys of motherhood. But the girls did have a good time on their trip and learned a lot of cool things from the Bible! I am thankful for our church family.
