Kids Camp 2012!

This past week was packed full of fun! And exhaustion, children (a whole slew), coughs, tummy aches, camp food, and large trees falling on things that large trees should not fall on. What was this occasion, you may ask?

Kids Camp of course!

It was a week well spent with Jennie, Jessica (La La and/or Becca according to Maddie), the Warner kids, and a load of campers.

I have lost sleep, discovered that Jessica is capable of saving my life (four times), gained memories and some shrapnel in my arm.

Sounds like a fantastice week to me!

On Sunday and Monday I was a counselor for Kids Alive. This was a two day one night mini camp for the first and second graders. We are attempting to prepare the younger kids for a week away from their parents at Kids Camp. I was lucky enough to have Brenda as my co-counselor.

Though blurry, this picture perfectly captures Pastor Paul, the speaker for both camps. He and his wife, Miss Jessica, had an extremely interactive and fun program. I don't think it was possible to get bored in one of his messages!

This is my happy little dinosaur, Maddie. I make this reference to our historic friends because when one lays this small fry down in her crib, the dinosaur noises ensue. It's histerical! She had a bit of a cold this week :(. But sisterooni held through the week better than most of her older counterparts:).

Action Jackson is learning to be a wonderful big brother to Maddie and Sam. He'll be a wonderful daddy someday.

This is probably the only time that Sam was sitting still long enough for me to take a picture. Isn't he so sweet? Inside is a little ball of energy that doesn't understand that kittens don't enjoy being grabbed around the neck. He'll learn:).

I'm missing three of my Warner kids in this post. They were only seen by us adults at meal time and bed time. Bailie was a camper and Rylie and Lillie were galavanting through camp most of the week. They love it there, as do I!

And then there's this lovely lady. Jessica. She and I tag teamed all week as we watched the kids while Jennie tended to her camp manager wife duties:). She serves Jennie well, as her niece and her assistant during camps. 20 days and she'll be at it again (and I may be joining her!).

It's been real. Thank you to all of the behind the scenes workers at camp as well as the directors. You all did a great job!

Peace out, girl scouts.
