Going To Camp...

Our family will be attending children's church camp this week. I along with a few other women from church will have a cabin of girls under our care. This is the third year now of doing and I have had a great time each year.
However, I have learned a few things. As a mother of all boys, boys can be relativley simple. For dressing, they just slap some clothes on, put a cap over their head and they are ready to face the day. They like to be moving, like action, horseplay and fun.
The first year at camp with a cabin of girls, I was astonished at the amount of time it took to do...anything! First they had to find their clothes - the right clothes - then they sat down awhile and "chat" or play those slap games. Finally as we were at the door ready to leave, they needed to do their hair. This I learned can take up to 1/2 hour!
So now that I have a better idea of what to expect with my girls, we are ready for camp. If you think about it, please pray for the camp, that along with the fun, games, friends and food, they will take with them a message of God's love and plan for them that will lead and guide them always in their life. That what it is all about!
See you next week!
