A Beautiful Ending to a Beautiful Summer

That's right.
Our summer is OVER.
It went by so fast and, to be honest, it is really suppose to be over now.
However, even though my room at school is FAR from being ready . . . 
Even though I have not written one single lesson plan . . . 
Even though I really should be at school . . . 
I really need to have a day with my kids.
That's important.

When you ask my kids where they want to go on a beautiful summer day. . . 
they WILL answer - 
So off we went.

It was a gorgeous summer day!
Once we got to the park, we rode with our windows down.
We enjoyed some new parts of the park as well as some of our favorite spots.
We saw more wildlife than ever before.

Here are some of the highlights!

A beautiful day . . .
A beautiful way to end the summer . . . 
Can't wait to see what God has in store for us this next school year!

Saying Goodbye . . . .

One of the hardest things about camp is saying goodbye . . .
to friends you have made . . . 
to people who have made your life better . . . 

This was one of those years.  We knew it was going to be hard, but we remember how blessed our lives have been because of the people who have been a part of it the last year, two years and even 4 years.
Many call MSYC "Heaven on Earth," and the more I see of it - the more I agree with that.
The people you meet at MSYC make you want to live a life on earth (and help you live a life on earth) that will prepare you for eternity in heaven.
You just have to love it.

 We have only ever known camp with Steven . . . how different next year will be without him.

Precious McKenzie who has LOVED these girls all 3 weeks they have been at camp.

 How we will miss Scott as well . . . 

There's nowhere else they would rather be!

So glad my children have a "Heaven on Earth," and that they take advantage of it
as often as they do!

MSYC Week 8 - The Final Week

For the last 3 years LB and Madlyn have just had "Camp L&M" time while the "big"
kids went off to camp for the last week.  Last year, they decided that they could handle 
Week 8 of MSYC with the big kids and have really spent the whole year 
psyching themselves up for it!!

Now that it is here - they are PUMPED and ready for a great week with wonderful friends!

Wrapping Up Week 7 MSYC

On Friday, we went to pick up Carter from camp.
All I found was this . . . .

Really?  Tacky Day was over on Thursday MORNING!!!!
My. Stars.
Despite my asking begging, he kept it on through the silly songs and
awards ceremony.

and even his picture with his counselor Steven.

Then I convinced him to take it off, and well
I just took it off of him so the rest of the pictures could be decent - 
as any picture with him is going to be!

with Scott
with his new BFF, Baylor

with cousin Tom

and Ben

and Matt

and his JC, Robbie

I am thrilled with the fact that Carter LOVES camp!!!
He is already making plans for next year.
Heaven on earth . . . right here in Henderson!
