Family Camp

This was the 5th year our homeschool group has hosted a Family Camp and the first that we've gone. What a blast! A whole slew of families, one awesome retreat center, a rock-out aquatic facility, a great fire pit, terrific cabins (complete with air conditioning- totally suitable for a week-end that sported 98 degree weather), a lake, friends, food, fun, tons of laughs, late nights around the fire (charcoal briquettes due to the burn ban) and just relaxing together before fall schedule really hits.
Jannell was not kidding when she said once you go, you are committed for life.
Gladly so.

Girl party (one of many!)

Some parents shore-side (others on or in the lake)

Water fun- boats, floats and friends.

Our very cool friends, Don and Ricki, lent us the use of their canoe. Dr. Dh spent many happy hours on the lake.

Snake Alert! Small rattlin', diamond headed snake found in a cabin! Eek! Thanks to IPad Technology it was determined that it was a bull snake. Whew.

Awesome play-ground, which allowed playground kids to look over in to the pool!

Amanda and cutie Anna Marie, snuggling after swimming.

Lots of dog walking and talking.

And laughing.

And visiting.
and porch sitting. And sunning.
A great week-end.
A relaxing, vacationing, fun week-end.
Have I mentioned before how much we love our homeschool group?!
Home again and in honor of Labor Day we are polyurethaning doors and cleaning door hardware. We discovered buried treasure but you'll have to check back Wednesday to see what it is!!
