Nobody got punched....

I survived Family Camp 2007. Ok...ok...it was actually...fun. And yes, Hillary and I already made plans for next year. My prediction was that Phil will be home, she will be a little bit pregnant, and I will miraculously be wearing a 2K ring on my left ring finger! Dreaming..yes, maybe it was all the fresh air and dirt.

It really was a great time. I am so thankful for the TIME we got to spend together, and I didn't have to drive to Seattle to play with Lora and Will and talk to their parents, nor did I have to drive to Snoqualmie or Redmond to see Hillary and my parents. We were all there together! It was nice to walk into the great room in the morning and see my dad playing Black Belt Sudoku. I had someone to sit with, to talk to and to complain about people who are ALWAYS first in line. It was nice.

Floating the river was fun - it got a little cold at the end and watching CW tip over made me a little nervous, but Hillary saved her and they made it back to shore. It was also fun to be with Brent & Ellie - they had a great time and helped when asked and played well with others. They are such good kids.

It was also good to hear dad preach again. He told good stories, that always make me cry and make me want to know Jesus more - more than I think I do and more than anything else in my life. I want to know him and love him and dad helps me do that better.

I will also say that the food was great! We have some good cooks there and we didn't go hungry that's for sure!

We got home this afternoon and I already miss hanging out with people...maybe this is what being "in community" feels like. I don't do it well, but this once a year weekend is nice! Here's to FC 2008!

It was fun, and I, too, am looking forward to next year. I got to know and appreciate people that I wouldn't have under ordinary circumstances. And I am the Queen of the Train Game.

You are the queen of so many things...why do I have the tat? It was good for my spirit to have you there...you don't even know. It's probably why some people didn't get punched!! I love you mommy.

I'm glad you all were there...the Anderson clan were a nice addition to Camp Camrec...thanks for taking care of Lo so much! It really freed me up to be able to help more, which I haven't been able to do in the past...wait, what am I saying? Maybe you shouldn't come next year! :)

I am glad that you guys had a good time! You can hold me to this, but even my husband has said that we will go next year. So watchout queen of the Train game - I have a reputation!

About Me

I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.
