The last three days have flown by in a flurry of driving kids back and forth to town for Campfire (Lakeside Fireplace Church "VBS"). This was the first time I had ever had so many of my kids gone at a time. Maggie and Glory had class with Miss Amy from 9-11. Caleb and Ellie were at church from 9-6 pm. Carlie got there whenever it worked out but did not get picked up until 9 pm. Ellie got to bring her friend (C.V.) home each day after camp. The kids got a lot out of this time, especially Glory and Maggie. I have heard all about how Jesus is their King. They sang the Misty Edwards song with the lyrics "He's not a baby in a manger anymore, He's not a broken man on the Cross, He didn't stay in the grave, and He's not staying in Heaven forever. He's Alive!" (Check her out on Itunes. The song is "People Get Ready".)

Our church truly feels like an extension of our family and I love that the kids are getting so much more than just Bible stories and cute songs with hand motions. Those things are great and have there place, but I want more for my children than what I had. So for all of you involved with helping out at Campfire, thank you so much.

Tonight we will wrap up Campfire with our monthly Burgers in the Park complete with food and beach time. After that I am so ready to get back to normal, whatever that is this year, and start practicing a fall routine. These next couple of weeks will race by me and then a more organized and scheduled busy-ness will begin! :)
