school camping trip





















I just returned over the weekend from a trip to the NC mountains where I was honored to spend 3 days camping with the wonderful kids in Elizabeth's 6th grade class.  These kids are truly the sweetest, most creative, the most eager to dive into whatever is thrown at them, and they have the most joyful spirit while they work on everything from setting up tents to washing dishes to whittling sticks.  We played in frigid rivers, hiked to waterfalls, sketched, observed, whittled, sang (every song from this play) around a campfire, and generally had an amazing time.  I would take a trip with these kids every year if the opportunity was afforded me.  And I'm so grateful that Elizabeth has the opportunity to grow up around such amazing people.

  2. Camping! Whether it is in a tent, camper, or on the ground, camping is an excellent way to travel to new places, see the 'great outdoors', and have a phenomenal time with your family and friends of all ages! I have had many camping adventures through my life that have made camping one of my favorite ... Free Pocket Knife

  3. If one of your friends or friends of your children are experienced campers, you will find them to probably be evangelistic about it and happy to let you tag along on their next camp out to show you the ropes.gazebo canopy
