Our camper returns

This morning, we packed up Alyssa and Ethan at 6:40 am and headed for Carnation. It took us just over 2 hours to get there. The kids did great. Of course, when we arrived at camp, all the campers were still in the dining hall finishing up breakfast. We went to Brenna's cabin and found her suitcase, pillow and sleeping bag. Of course, mom did inventory before leaving camp to make sure we had everything...and WE DID! She actually had an extra pair of socks so we took those to lost and found. It was so good to see Brenna and, yes, she was excited to see all of us as well. We got to spend about 15 minutes with her before she had to go to "closing ceremonies" at the chapel. The campers, and parents, got to watch a great DVD of the week at camp and then they had some final awards and closed with praise and worship. It was great to see this room filled with 3rd-6th graders praising God...and having fun while doing so. Brenna had an awesome week at camp. She met lots of new friends and had an amazing counselor. It was great to listen to her as she shared with us bits and pieces of morning and evening chapel times and what the Pastor shared with them during these times. It is so good to have her home! Okay, it's off to bed for this mommy.
The front of the cabins were filled with all the campers' belongings.

How many people can we cram in the chapel?

Have you ever seen so many 3rd-6th graders having so much fun praising God and having a blast while doing so?
