Camp Adventure

Already a month into our summer groove, I sought out something fun to shake up our routine a bit and give Troy something special to do. A well-recommended VBS at a nearby church seemed like a good fit! Truth? It was a struggle that week for Troy to go. He didn't seem to love it when we asked him at the end of the day. Mostly because he "didn't have time to sit and play with toys". So yea. But he did keep going day to day as he was curious as to who was winning the "boys vs girls" fundraiser for the mission to bring clean water to a community. And we wrapped up the week with a family night which he was looking forward to!

Now judging from his experience at the family night, his week must have been a blast! He met new people. He participated in every thing they did. And he learned the songs :)

Cassidy sat with him in his group during the large group times, which he loved :) And she loved too!

The kindergarteners had their chance to sing one of the songs on stage and it was, as to be expected, completely sweet.

Then we spent some time going through all the different stations. Here's a moment of Troy being recognized by the teacher in the Bible storytelling room. We were all impressed with his attention to detail on this one :)

There were plenty of camp games and the leaders were all great.

And crafts for everyone, too.

As a former camp leader, I remember fondly the kids who ALWAYS wanted to sit in the leader's lap. Cassidy is that kid. She'd never met this gal before but she was sure to jot her number down as a potential sitter after Cass bonded with her that evening!

Then there was the moment that they said they needed some parent volunteers to come up on stage. My kid sprang RIGHT to his feet and promptly shouted "MOM!" We cracked up in how he didn't even try to get Dad up there. But Mom? Yea I'm a sucker for camp games.
