We thank you for your prayers… we were able to get our swim tests done…. They were done in the pouring rain, but… they’re done. All the kids were super accommodating to our need to be flexible and rearrange the schedule a couple times as we dealt with yet another day of completely out of nowhere soaker systems, and then random thunder claps in the midst of beautiful sunny skies.
Today’s lunch theme was “Tacky Tourist” and some of the cabins pulled it off really nicely! I didn’t see them, unfortunately, but my dear Mommy was gracious and thoughtful enough to grab my camera while I dealt with the change of plan in the tuck shop.
Like I mentioned above, we had another complete deluge of rain this afternoon… that lasted for a solid 8 minutes… then the sun came back out. It poured, but once again, no one seemed to really be all that bothered by it. I even heard a few kids mention that playing in the rain meant they didn’t need showers! Don’t worry though, we disagree. Aunt Laura and baby Landon got a good dance in the rain in as well, and Landon didn’t seem phased!
Because it stopped raining so quickly, the water evaporated rather quickly and left us with a beautiful afternoon. Kids were even able to play outside!
I had to make a trip into Parry Sound this afternoon, but when I got back the kids were just assembling for Underground! It’s been so nice to hear energetic worship bounding through the floors, and I had a chance to pop in this evening and see it in action. This morning, through the walls of the tuck shop, I heard a rousing competition of that old “hallelu hallelu hallelu hallelujah!” song brought back to life. I hadn’t heard it in years, and it’s lovely to hear the kids praising Jesus so excitedly. The pictures you’re going to see are blurry, but that’s because there’s an action for almost every word of My Redeemer Lives. The kids and the leaders were dancing…. and Noah and Chloe were photo bombing!
While I was in my parents’ backyard watching yet another glorious sunset (doesn’t it just remind you that God works all things together for good after a stormy day like this?), I could hear the kids screaming at the Campfire. Did they ever sound like they were having fun! I know sound travels well over water, but I bet that was loud at Camp, because we’re off site and down the road a little bit. That’s alright, though. Campfire is supposed to be loud!
