Home from Camp!

Maria is home from camp, the boys can’t stop holding her hand, she bought a bunch of crap with the $10 we gave her (“MOM! It’s a bird house!” “Um…really?”) 

She made a slew of friends, and got in trouble for reading her bible late last night after bedtime, “But it’s so cool, and I can find anything in here, it’s like, so big…”  

First moments home, extracting a huge splinter while  showing her cool camp photo.  

First Elijah, then Finley, while Andrew took about 14 stealth shots.  You guys…

These boys LOVE their sister

Within hours of being home, we dressed up the kids like cows which got us a HUGE free dinner, it was amazing…  
“I a real cow, mama, look at my cow ears!”
Please notice the marker on their noses and paper spots.

 The next morning, “Mama, I’m doing church with my dolls, reading them the bible…”

“Wow, go girl!” 

(Still a little bit of marker on her nose)

Finley wanted in on this action so he joined. 

 “Finley, what did God make?” -Maria

“Um….um…” as he thought about it.

“Did he make the trees and animals?” she offered.
 “Um, he made…dinner,” then pushed his car with the satisfaction of a job well done while Maria and I giggled.

They are so cute 🙂

  I showed her that I even started painting her bathroom while she was gone…to finish one day.

Aaand, and she made the camp video! Fast forward to 7:30 to see her twice, being the cutest. Ever.

    So glad Maria’s week at camp was great – and yay for Forest Home memories!

    I remember sitting in that same ampitheatre worshipping, them sort of retelling/acting out Pilgrim’s Progress (and I think it was Hind’s Feet on High Places the next year), the teaching, memorizing the verses, the lake, the blob, the river (and polar bear plunge), camp food, staying up entirely too late, the camp photo, ridiculous games (and the better ones!) and mostly, seeing God do so very much!

    What a precious gift in that video where you get to see her smiling face and know how great her week was! And you’ve gotta love that she got in trouble for being up reading her Bible!

    So sweet how much your little trio love one another 🙂

    And I love that God made dinner. That’s one you need to get on video. You know, for someday when he complains that he’s not a fan of whatever you made or are serving. You can tell him to take it up with God 😀 Hee, hee.

    So glad that she had fun at camp!!
    Our Emma is doing a week now.

    Every kid should experience camp Gol Darnit, and not because their orphanage needs somewhere to ship them to during shut down.

    Love the video! She looks soooo happy!

    Oh my goodness, I am SO thrilled that Maria got to experience the wonderfulness of Forest Home!!! I have never been a camper there officially, but I was a CCA four separate times and I worked in the Clubhouse for the entire summer last year. So many fantastic memories and great friends there! Adventure Mountain is amazing! 😀

    What a big, wonderful deal…camp! I can only imagine how good it was to have her home after that experience. I hope it all went well. She looks so happy…just beautiful.
